United States citizens 18 years of age and older living in private households in the coterminous United States.
The individuals interviewed were a representative cross-section of persons of voting age living in private households in the continental United States. For the sample, the 12 largest metropolitan areas of the United States were drawn with certainty to represent themselves. The rest of the country was formed into 54 strata. From each stratum, one primary sampling area was chosen. The 26 areas not representing "open country" were further substratified according to rental value and dwelling units per block, and probability selections of blocks were then made from these substrata.
