There is new leadership at UConn’s Roper Center for Public Opinion Research , one of the world’s leading archives of social science data, specializing in data from surveys of public opinion.
The data held by the Roper Center, on the Storrs campus of the University of Connecticut, range from the 1930s, when survey research was in its infancy, to the present. Most of the archived information is from the United States, but more than 50 nations are represented.
In the Roper Center’s role as an archive, it preserves data from polls conducted by many leading survey organizations for the use of researchers, students and journalists. In total, the collection includes responses from millions of individuals on a vast range of topics.
