Sampling Procedure Comment: An attempt was made to interview again all respondents of the survey of 1974 (ZA Study No. 0757, multi-stage stratified random sample). From the representative part of this first survey (2307 respondents) it was possible to complete 912 interviews in the second wave, for which identity with the respondents of the first wave was certain beyond doubt. For the special sample (461 respondents without interviewer-interviews) it was possible to complete 180 interviews in the follow-up survey. This provides for the entire sample of 2768 respondents in the first wave a sum of 1092 interviews achieved in the second wave. (For explanation of the special sample see ´special features´) The age of the respondents was 22 years and older.

Political Ideology II is the systematic continuation of an international comparative study conducted from 1973 to 1976 in seven European countries (Austria, Netherlands, Great Britain, Finland, Italy, Switzerland and the Federal Republic of Germany) and the USA. The German part of the study Political Ideology I is documented under ZA Study No. 757, the international study under ZA Study No. 0765. Besides the Federal Republic the Netherlands and the USA are involved in the continuation project. In all three countries a follow-up survey of the persons interviewed in 1973 to 1976 and a new cross-section survey was conducted (survey year: Netherlands 1979 and USA 1981). The current description (ZA Study No. 1190) is based on the follow-up survey (1980) in the Federal Republic; the cross-section survey (1980) is documented under ZA Study No. 1191. An integrated data set of the cross-section and follow-up surveys of the three countries still involved in the continuation project exists under ZA Study Nos. 1188 and 1189. In the Federal Republic in 1982 additional theme conversations were conducted with 100 person selected according to theoretical criteria from the respondents of the follow-up survey in 1980.
