The Voice of the People Survey Series is WIN/Gallup International Association's End of Year survey and is a global study that collects the public's view on the challenges that the world faces today. Ongoing since 1977, the purpose of WIN/Gallup International's End of Year survey is to provide a platform for respondents to speak out concerning government and corporate policies.

The Voice of the People, End of Year Surveys for 2013, fielded September to December 2013, were conducted in 66 countries to solicit public opinion on social and political issues. Respondents were asked to give their opinion in regards to how the economic situation in their country would fluctuate over the next year, as well as rate their personal happiness. Additional questions included what respondents felt was the most important problem facing the world today, and whether religion plays a positive or negative role in their country. Respondents were also queried on what country they would like to live in, whether more women politicians would make the world a better place, which country they believe is the greatest threat to world peace, and corruption within their country. Demographic information includes age, income, education level, employment status, religious affiliation, and household family composition.
