Description
  • Abstract

    This poll, fielded in March of 2014, is 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 various topics including government leaders, the Obama administration, United State Congress, the 2014 congressional election, the economy, the Affordable Care Act, Pope Francis, and the Tea Party movement. There are also a series of questions regarding cellular and land-line phone use, Russian troops entering Ukraine, and potential terrorist attacks in the United States. Demographic information includes age, race, ethnicity, marital status, education level, household income, type of residential area (e.g., urban or rural), voter registration status, political party affiliation, and political philosophy.
  • Methods

    The data are not weighted; however, the data contain 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.
  • Methods

    ICPSR data undergo a confidentiality review and are altered when necessary to limit the risk of disclosure.
