description:
This study collected data from 147 French and 173 German elite figures in order to investigate four significant aspects of French and West German politics relevant to the issue of arms control and disarmament in Western Europe. These four areas were domestic policy, foreign policy, European integration, and arms control and disarmament. The questions probed respondents' perceptions of the political system and its future, opinions on specific foreign policy issues and their relationship to domestic politics, the two Germanys question, national sovereignty versus international associations, European integration, and various nuclear strategies and arms control arrangements. Latent attitude structures were also measured. The "latent attitudes" questions tapped the respondents' interest in and emotional reactions to issues, perceptions of emotional reactions to professional roles and responsibilities, general ability to structure problems, open-mindedness, alienation, and feelings of competence. Biographical data, including standard demographic and personal information as well as data on party, military, and governmental backgrounds, were compiled from public records and interviews. Demographic variables cover age, sex, religious affiliation, level of education, military service, and past and present occupations.
