The American National Election Studies are national surveys carried out by the Survey Research Center (SRC)--or by the Center for Political Studies (CPS) of The Institute for Social Research at The University of Michigan. They are based on multistage representative cross-section samples of citizens of voting age, living in private households. Each study contains information from interviews conducted with 1,000 to 2,000 respondents. The samples are representative of the four major regions (Northeast, North Central, South, and West) of the coterminous United States as defined by the Census Bureau. Descriptions of the sampling procedures can be found in Leslie Kish, SURVEY SAMPLING (New York: John Wiley and Sons, 1964). Interviewing was conducted after the presidential election of 1948, before and after Presidential elections, from 1952 through 1980, but only after the congressional elections of 1958, 1962, 1966, 1970, 1974, 1978, 1982, and 1986. Also, in 1980 data were collected at six time periods in addition to the traditional pre- and post- presidential election surveys. Interviews ranged from one to three hours in length. Many questions are replicated across studies, although each has questions not asked in the others.
