We love sharing data! If you’re into crunching numbers and you’re an animal advocate or scholar, you might want to access to our original datasets for analysis purposes. If you find anything interesting, please be sure to let us know.
There are no restrictions on using the datasets outside of crediting that any findings are based on a study that was designed and carried out by Faunalytics.
Here’s what we currently have available:
Animal Tracker, 2008–2016
The Faunalytics Animal Tracker is an annual survey of U.S. adults’ attitudes and behavior with respect to animals and animal advocates. It is the only longitudinal survey dedicated to animal protection issues. The first survey was conducted in 2008 and included 15 core questions; a subset of five questions has been asked every year since. Access the reports from past years, explore the results visually using our graphing tool, or download the complete dataset in SPSS format from this Google drive folder. Note: we are currently working on incorporating the 2017 data into the merged file and creating a data dictionary for the merged dataset.

The file includes an 11,000+ representative sample of individuals 17 and over in the U.S., which was used to extract a subsample of close to 1,400 current and lapsed vegetarians/vegans.
USDA Food Recalls, 2006–2010
