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 congressional elections of 1958, 1962, 1966, 1970, 1974, 1978, and 1982. 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. The major substantive areas covered in all studies may be roughly grouped as follows: Respondents' expectations about the outcome of the election, perceptions and evaluations of the major parties and candidates, and perceived importance of the election. - Party identification and political history of respondents and their parents. - Measurement of respondents' interest in politics and their political motivation. - Respondents' issue positions, the strength of these positions, and respondents' perceptions of the major parties' stands and differences relating to these issues. - Respondents' perceptions of economic, ethnic, and religious group political orientation and feelings of closeness and trust towards these groups. - Respondents' assessments of the relative importance of major problems facing the country and general appraisals of foreign and domestic state of affairs. - Self-reported assessments of financial situation and class identity and questions relating to economic, social, and geographic mobility. - Sources of political information, degree of political interaction with family and friends, and organizational membership and activities. - Measures of political efficacy, conservatism versus liberalism and trust in government. - Personal data yielding information on sex, race, age, education, occupation, father's occupation, ethnic background, religious affiliation, income, family composition, and region of the country in which the respondent grew up and is presently living. - Post-election questions on actual voting behavior and awareness of, and participation in the campaign.
