The Gallup Organization

The Gallup Organization

The Gallup Organization provides a variety of management consulting, human resources and statistical research services. The Gallup Organization has over 40 offices in 27 countries. World headquarters are in Washington, D.C.; operational headquarters are in Omaha, Nebraska. The current Chairman and CEO of The Gallup Organization is Jim Clifton.

Gallup currently has four divisions: Gallup Poll, Gallup Consulting, Gallup University, and Gallup Press.

The Gallup Organization was founded in 1958, when George Gallup grouped all of his polling operations into one organization. After Gallup's death in 1984, The Gallup Organization was sold to Selection Research, Incorporated (SRI) of Lincoln, Nebraska in 1988. SRI, founded in 1969 by the psychologist Don Clifton, pioneered the use of talent-based structured psychological interviews.

Gallup Europe is part of the Gallup Organization. Established in 2003 in Brussels as a joint venture of various European offices, Gallup Europe acts as the coordination center for polling activities in Europe and provides evidence-based policy research and measurement-based strategic advice for all policy areas to policy- and decision-makers. It is notably the current provider of the European Commission's "Flash Eurobarometers" (See: [] ) — ad hoc thematical telephone interviews to measure public opinion.
