The GPB tracks how well global players use power to advance their policy goals. The chart covers the day indicated in the date bar above the chart and is updated each evening. Note that the chart does not move until it is updated. Clicking on an icon links to supporting data that is updated and expanded continually throughout the day.

The system tracks thousands of news media, academic, governmental and other sources. The relative position of the players are driven by opinion, events, and other soft and hard factors. The system does not count articles like a "buzz meter." See "What's this" for more.
