The Gallup International Association (GIA) is an association of polling organizations registered in Zurich, Switzerland. The Gallup International Association was founded in May 1947. Dr. George H. Gallup served as its first President, until his death in 1984.[1][2]

Gallup, Inc. and the Gallup International Association (GIA) were involved in a legal dispute over the use of the Gallup name.[3]

Gallup International Association or its members are not related to Gallup Inc., headquartered in Washington D.C which is no longer a member of Gallup International Association. Gallup International Association does not accept responsibility for opinion polling other than its own. Gallup International requires that their surveys be credited fully as Gallup International (not Gallup or Gallup Poll).
