  • Abstract

    This poll, fielded in November 2013, is a part of a continuing series of monthly surveys that solicits public opinion on a range of political and social issues. Respondents were asked their opinions on the Obama administration, the economy, foreign policy, and health insurance law. Opinions were also asked about the federal budget deficit, privacy concerns, and holiday shopping attitudes. There are also a series of questions regarding cellular and land-line telephone use. Demographic information includes age, race, ethnicity, type of residential area (e.g. urban or rural), marital status, education level, household income, voter registration status, political party affiliation, political philosophy, and Tea Party affiliation.
  • Methods

    The data are not weighted. However, the dataset contains a weight variable (WEIGHT) that should be used in analyzing the data. According to the CBS News Web site, the data were weighted to match the United States Census Bureau breakdowns on age, sex, race, education, and region of the country. The data were also adjusted for the fact that people who share a telephone with others have less chance to be contacted than people who live alone and have their own telephones, and that households with more than one telephone number have more chances to be called than households with only one telephone number.
