  • Abstract

    This data collection contains information on the strength of nationalism in Canada and the reaction of Canadians to the question of annexation to the United States. Respondents were asked for their opinions on the way of life of Canadians as opposed to Americans, whether they supported annexing Canada to the United States, their perceptions of the American opinion of the proposed annexation, the outcome of a military alliance and economic union with the United States, and the effect that the union would have on the Canadian political system and Canadian standard of living. Demographic information collected on respondents includes age, sex, ethnicity, marital status, employment status, educational background, region where respondent resided and the community size, immigrant status of the respondent's father, and the income of the head of household.
