New Data Providers
We're excited to announce a major acquisition to our growing list of data providers. The Commonwealth Fund has gathered data on public attitudes and practices regarding healthcare both nationally and internationally for over two decades.

We are also proud to offer data from the Castleton Polling Institute, covering a variety of topics with surveys conducted in the state of Vermont.

Long-Term Care

Most Americans feel the country is not adequately prepared to care for its aging population. Read our analysis of the polls.
Holiday Party

Just before winter break, the Roper staff enjoyed a holiday get-together at the beautiful Argos Warehouse event space. See more photos from the party here.
IT Time

Roper IT has been working hard to build new features and tools. Recently we released a new data deposit portal that will allow providers to more easily archive their data with proper and complete documentation. Stay tuned for more news and updates!
Kohut Fellow Studies Fake News
The fake news phenomenon has become a hot topic. The general public, influential corporations, advertising platforms, and the president himself have started to explore the implications of politicized mass misinformation. In response, grassroots project teams, branches of big business, and nonprofits look to generate combative solutions and media literacy initiatives.
 
In the summer of 2017, Andrew Kohut Fellow Claire Liu explored public opinion on fake news using iPOLL data. Claire found that while most Americans worry about fake news, they typically do not feel personally threatened by it, and poll respondents have varied opinions on who ought to take responsibility. Read more about how opinion data can shape intervention in the era of fake news.
