  • Abstract

    This poll, the last of two fielded January of 2013, is part of a continuing series of monthly surveys that solicits public opinion on a range of political and social issues. Respondents were asked their opinions about global warming, immigration, women's role in joining combat units in the military, consumer behaviors, violence in video games, gun use, gun control, arming teachers at school, and whether they thought things in the country were going in the right direction. Opinions were solicited about genetically modified foods, respondents' level of concern regarding genetically modified foods, whether respondents would eat genetically modified food, and whether foods containing genetically modified ingredients should be labeled. Additional topics included information on the respondent's first valentine, TV viewing behaviors (e.g. Oscars, State of the Union address), 2013 Super Bowl, sports and the importance of winning, respondents' opinions on other people's choice to not have children, and the recovery in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. Demographic information includes sex, age, race, marital status, education level, household income, type of residential area (e.g. urban or rural), political party affiliation, political philosophy, voting behavior, whether respondents were registered to vote, religious affiliation, and whether respondents thought of themselves as born again Christians.
  • Methods

    The data contain a weight (wght) variable that should be used in analyzing the data. The data were weighted to match United States Census Bureau breakdowns on age, sex, race, education, and region of the country. The data were also adjusted for the fact that people who share a telephone with others have less chance to be contacted than people who live alone and have their own telephones, and that households with more than one telephone number have more chances to be called than households with only one telephone number.
