  • 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. This pilot study was designed to test instrumentation for the 1986 and 1988 National Election Studies. Special content areas emphasized in the pilot are: political knowledge, group membership, identification of elderly (aged 60 and over) Blacks and women with these social groups, attitudes toward racial issues, and opinions on traditional moral values. In order to experiment with question wording and formats, two forms were used in both waves.
