ENG 130 - English Comp (DiDomenico): Recommended Resources

Fact Checking Websites

These sites are non-partisan, and great for quick-checking claims on any "news" media.

Public Opinion Stats

Gallup Poll: Great reputation as a nonpartisan poll/survey examiner for news "based on US and world polls, daily tracking and public opinion research." Use the resources pull down, and go to topics A-Z, or just enter your basic terms in the search box.

Pew Institute: A nonpartisan site that uses polls/surveys to examine current issues and trends affecting America and the world. Use the search box to look for a specific item, or the topic index (tab at the top) or search by general overview. Scroll down in each issue, as there are several survey questions shown for each.

Roper Center for Public Opinion: Hot Topics, statistics archived since the 1930's to present.  Entire site is useful, but the topics area narrows it down.  Very useful.

Crime Statistics

Many links are from the Uniform Crime Reports, from the FBI, a voluntary submission of statistics from various departments related to law enforcement.
