The 2002 Gallup Poll of the Islamic World, Executive Report
Perkins Library owns the raw data of the 2002 Gallup Poll of the Islamic World. Designed to measure the views of the entire national population of each country included in the project, the Poll samples citizens in both urban and rural areas. It is 'based on a multistage probability sample.'
The countries included in the Poll are Indonesia, Iran, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Morocco, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey.
All 10,000 interviews for the Poll were conducted in-person, in the home of the interviewee. The interview consisted of approx. 120 questions and required about one hour to be completed. The interviews were conducted in December 2001 and January 2002. Supervised by Gallup Organization research managers, the research process was carried out by research organizations indigenous to each region.
The micro-data are in nine country-specific files in SPSS format (file extension .sav) on a CD-ROM disc. SPSS is a statistical software package that allows for easy statistical analysis of raw data files. However, the data set is not restricted to use in SPSS alone. SPSS files can be exported into formats such as Excel, dBase, ASCII, etc.
In addition to the numeric data files, the CD-ROM disc contains a file with the coded results of the open-ended questions in the survey broken out by country.
The data CD-ROM disc contains a copy of the original questionnaire in pdf format. Developed in English, the questionnaire was then translated into the local languages. Subsequently, the local language versions were retranslated into English prior to fielding for context approval.
The 2002 Gallup Poll of the Islamic World is available for academic use by members of the Duke University community (faculty, students, and staff). If the data set or part of it is used in a publiction, users should cite the survey as follows:
