  • Abstract

    This brief special-topic Pilot study focused on a single general topic, trust. Respondents were asked for their opinions on the honesty, respectfulness, courteousness, and general trustworthiness of the neighbors in their communities, their colleagues at work, and politicians. Questions included items on respondents' membership in community organizations and attendance at meetings, whether the respondents worked cooperatively with others on community issues, and whether they had ever contacted government officials regarding community concerns. Politicians were evaluated as to their respect for the citizenry and for their opponents, whether they made campaign promises that they did not intend to keep, and whether politicians would pay more attention to people like the respondent if elections were held more often. One section of the questionnaire asked respondents to gauge how participating in certain activities (attending religious services, following public affairs, voting) and having certain opinions (in favor of further integrating public schools, increasing Social Security spending, instituting term limits for Congress) would shape other people's impressions of them. Demographic variables include gender, race, employment status, and length of residency in the community.

The sample for the 2000 Pilot comprised a selection of cases from the 1998 NES Post-Election study. The 2000 Pilot selection procedure first grouped all 1998 respondents according to Low, Low-Medium, Medium, Medium-High, or High level of political knowledge and interest (PKI). Then, within each group of cases, those respondents for whom current telephone-contact information was not known were removed, and a predetermined number of the remaining respondents in each group was randomly selected for the Pilot sample.
