In the field of public opinion, research spans several aspects of the social sciences, from political attitudes in political science, to understanding family life in sociology, to consumer confidence surveys in economics. Moreover, the development of scientific sampling methods and sophisticated interviewing techniques has improved the precision in measuring public sentiments. This bibliography covers some of the major resources for studying and understanding public opinion in the United States and other advanced industrial democracies. It focuses on the major recent books on the content and methodology of public opinion research as a guide to current scholarship. In addition, the bibliography includes information on primary resources and journals focusing on public opinion research. Many of the large-scale US and international public opinion projects also provide the actual survey data and additional information and bibliographies on their research topics, and these projects are listed below.
