Description
  • 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. In conjunction with research and development efforts for AMERICAN NATIONAL ELECTION STUDY, 1980 (ICPSR 7763), this small national pilot survey was conducted utilizing 30 primary sampling units. Respondents were interviewed in March 1979 and reinterviewed in April 1979. The survey focused on the evaluation of candidates (their traits and affects), the dimensions of partisanship, assessment of inflation versus unemployment, social context (friends and neighborhood), and the follow-up of the national problems deemed most important by respondents, such as inflation, the federal budget, the balance of trade, changes in the economy, and the efficacy of governmental intervention in domestic affairs.
