Description
  • Abstract

    Citizen Disenchantment in Mexico is a national survey (N=650) carried out in June, 2006, and funded by National Science Foundation Dissertation Improvement Grant Award #0519262 (PI's David Crow and Robert Luskin). The survey's 96 questions gauge citizen definitions of democracy (including a 12-item battery on electoral, liberal, and substantive conceptualizations of democracy) and evaluations of Mexican democracy. It also includes a 15-item battery on migration experiences. The survey is organized into eight sections: (1) Political Participation and Preferences; (2) Political Interest; (3) Migration and Remittances; (4) General Concepts about Democracy; (5) Evaluation of Democracy in Mexico; (6) Support for Democracy; (7) Political Knowledge; and (8) Sociodemographic Data.

Sampled Universe
Mexican citizens living in Mexico, 18 years or older. Smallest Geographic Unit: precinct
Sampling
Interviewees were selected according to a clustered, multi-stage sampling scheme with random selection at each stage. First, 65 polling places (secciones electorales) -- the primary sampling unit (PSU) -- were selected by simple random sampling, listed in the spreadsheet "MUESTRA FINAL DESENCANTO CIUDADANO.xls". Then, 10 households corresponding to each polling place were selected with a random start and sampling interval of 5 houses; that is, interviewers were instructed to locate polling sites, start at a street corner or landmark nearest the polling site, walk clockwise around the block (or rural demarcation) until arriving at the first house, then skip 5 houses after that, repeating the process until achieving 10 interviews (field substitutions were allowed). In the third, final stage, individuals were selected at random using the next birthday method.
