  • Abstract

    This telephone survey was conducted a few weeks after the October 29, 1973, provincial election in Quebec, Canada. Respondents were asked for their opinions on the actions of principal labor unions, whether they supported the separation of Quebec, and, if so, how long they had supported separation. Variables document respondents' choice of vote in the 1973 provincial election and the reasons for their choice. Respondents were also asked if they would have voted for Parti Quebecois if it had not been in favor of Quebec independence. Other variables probed respondents' attitudes toward the federal government and whether power should be concentrated in the provincial government or the federal government in Ottawa. Demographic information includes sex, age, education, marital status, occupation, labor union membership, language of interview, and respondent's origin -- French Canadian, English Canadian, Italian Canadian, or other. Data collected on respondent households includes number of persons over 18 years old in the household, family employment status over the last two years, occupation of head of household, labor union membership of head of household, and total family income.
