  • Abstract

    The mission of the non-partisan Paul Simon Public Policy Institute polling is to provide citizens, policy-makers, and academic researchers with objective information about trends and issues facing society.

    The 2009 Simon Poll interviewed 800 registered voters across Illinois. For the entire sample, the statistical margin for error is plus or minus 3.4 percentage points at the 95 percent confidence level.

    Areas covered by the poll are: general outlook, Illinois 2010 primary election, legislative redistricting, Illinois budget, Illinois political reform, approval of elected officials’, government taxes and services, quality of life, health care, abortion, and gay marriage. Demographic information is also included, covering age, race, gender, income, political party affiliation, political ideology, employment, household income, and religious activities. Respondents’ ZIP codes are included.

    On 2016-08-20, the openICPSR web site was moved to new software. In the migration process, some projects were not published in the new system because the decisions made in the old site did not map easily to the new setup. An ICPSR staff member manually published these projects, taking care to preserve the original wishes of the depositor.
