The Executive Approval Project (EAP) is a cross-national effort to measure and analyze public support for political executives. It is coordinated by an EAP Team and supported by Country Teams and numerous contributors around the globe. The EAP has produced multiple publications and is central to many ongoing projects.
A main component of the EAP is the Executive Approval Database (EAD), an ongoing data collection effort. The EAD contains quarterly and annual time series measures of executive approval for more than 50 countries based on data from hundreds of polling firms and thousands of individual public opinion polls. For many of these countries, monthly series are also available.
