  • Abstract

    This data collection provides codings of the level of conceptualization for respondents in each of the presidential election year American National Election Studies from 1956 through 1988. These codes are based upon respondent evaluations of the two major political parties and their presidential candidates. The codes were obtained directly from readings of interview protocols for the open-ended questions on parties and candidates rather than from the precoded response categories. Each part consists of two variables, a case identification number and the level of conceptualization code. In addition, the 1984 data (Part 8) contian a third variable indicating the spontaneous mention of Geraldine Ferraro at any point in the likes/dislikes sequence.
