  • Abstract

    The 1998 Dutch Prejudice Survey was a telephone survey of a random sample of Dutch citizens aged 16 or older. The survey was conducted under the auspices of the University of Utrecht.

    One person aged 16 or older was selected at random within each selected household to complete the interview. No substitutions were allowed.

    The survey was focused on attitudes toward various outgroups in Dutch society, including Turks, Moroccans, Surinamese, and refugees in general. There were also questions about Moslems, Jews, and the Dutch themselves. Since the survey was carried out with a computer-assisted interviewing system (Blaise), it could include many randomized experiments. Such experiments were used to assess the relative degree of prejudice toward, or tolerance of, the various groups. The relationship between prejudice and politics was also a focus of the study.

    The survey included many questions about political attitudes, values, and policies, and about voting behavior and party identification. This codebook includes the text of each question both in the original Dutch version and in a rather literal English translation.

    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.
