NYU Libraries is always trying to build our collection of interesting data that is useful for research. Here’s a highlighted list of selected data collections that we’ve acquired over the past few months. As always, if you have any questions about accessing this data, or if you would like to see NYU acquire other data, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.
RealtyTrac Housing Foreclosure Data
Gallup WorldPoll Reference Tool
NYU has already held access to several key Gallup data products, including Gallup Analytics, Gallup Poll, and Gallup Brain. In these tools, you can explore specific indicators and extract data for them at the country level. While this capability is good, it’s somewhat limited in that you cannot search multiple indicators across survey and countries at the same time. Now, NYU has access to the data behind the scenes! If you get in touch with us at Data Services, we can give you access to Gallup’s World Poll reference tool, which allows you to sift through respondent-level data and search specific indicators across time and space. Just let us know if you are interested.
