  • Abstract

    Individual-level data on voter registration and participation in the 1984 Presidential election are provided in this survey. Included are data on citizenship, voting participation in both 1980 and 1984, the time of day voted, and whether the individual heard a media announcement of the projected winner prior to voting. Other data include the standard Current Population Survey monthly data on labor force activity for the week preceding the survey. Comprehensive information is available for persons age 14 and over on employment status, occupation, and industry, plus such demographic characteristics as age, sex, race, marital status, veteran status, education, and Spanish origin.
