AbstractI show three new ways to use Google search query data. First, I use Google search data to measure racism in the United States and its effect on Obama in the 2008 and 2012 presidential elections. Second, I use Google search data to predict turnout in different parts of the United States prior to an election. Third, I use Google search data to measure child maltreatment and how maltreatment is affected by economic downturns.
