  • Abstract

    This SETUPS is designed as an introduction to the study of elections, voting behavior, and survey data through the analysis of the 1988 United States general election. The data are taken from the AMERICAN NATIONAL ELECTION STUDY, 1988: PRE- AND POST-ELECTION SURVEY (ICPSR 9196), conducted by Warren E. Miller and the National Election Studies. A subset of items including behavioral, attitudinal, and sociodemographic data were drawn from the full election survey.
