An effort by the Latin American Public Opinion Project (LAPOP) to measure democratic values and behaviors in the Americas using national probability samples of voting-age adults.

The Roper Center has put together a web page on public opinion regarding this and historical election issues. It's called US Presidential Election 2008 and includes charts and tables on topics such as the war in Iraq and whether people would vote for a candidate who was female of any race or an African-American man.

The Minneapolis Area Association of REALTORSĀ® has released "Foreclosures and Short Sales in the Twin Cities Housing Market," a special new research report that attempts to answer some of the more pressing questions surrounding lender-mediated properties. Includes an analysis of current inventory, new listings, closed sales, sales prices, and the impact that the growth of lender-mediated properties is having on each trend.

The data was gathered and analyzed by MAAR staff in collaboration with Aaron Dickinson, REALTORĀ® member with Edina Realty, and utilizes a new data approach based upon information from the NorthstarMLS system.
