  • Abstract

    This survey polled Canadian residents on the proposed secession of Quebec from the rest of Canada. Respondents were asked to provide their opinions on separation for Quebec, the best means of attaining separatism, French Canadian relations with English Canadians and with the federal government, possible economic effects of separatism, and the stand on separatism by the respondent's friends and relatives and by various public figures. Other variables include respondents' satisfaction with their current financial situation, outlook on their children's futures, frequency of contact with Anglophone Canadians at home and work, and whether they had ever been denied a job for lack of English language proficiency. Demographic information collected on respondents includes age, sex, education, language of education, English language proficiency, employment status, occupation, income, marital status, number of children, and length of current residence.
