  • Abstract

    This study is part of a time-series collection of national surveys fielded continuously since 1952. The election studies are designed to present data on Americans' social backgrounds, enduring political predispositions, social and political values, perceptions and evaluations of groups and candidates, opinions on questions of public policy, and participation in political life.

Sampled Universe
United States citizens 18 years of age and older living in private households in the coterminous United States.
The individuals interviewed in 1960 were a representative cross-section of persons of voting age living in private households in the United States. Complications in the sampling procedure were introduced by the fact that the 1960 study was the third wave of a panel study. In 1958, many of the 1956 respondents had moved and could not be reinterviewed at their original addresses. A number of these respondents were interviewed at their new addresses, but were included only in the panel study, not in the cross-section.
