  • Abstract

    This poll, fielded in April 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 the Donald Sterling controversy. There are also a series of questions regarding cellular and land-line phone use. 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. The African American and non-African American samples were weighted separately to match their group's population characteristics such as gender, age, education, region, marital status and phone use based on recent United States Census estimates. The samples were then combined and weighted to the total United States adult population. 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.

This poll was conducted among 1,054 adults nationwide. Phone numbers were dialed from samples of both standard land-line and cell phones. Additional interviews were conducted with African Americans, who had previously completed a survey as part of a random sample, to yield a sample size of 275. There were 660 Caucasians also interviewed. The error due to sampling for results based on the entire sample could be plus or minus three percentage points. The error for subgroups may be higher. The margin of error for the sample of Caucasians is 5 pts and 8 pts for African Americans.
