This study of Republican and Democratic county chairmen was originally intended as a supplement to the AMERICAN NATIONAL ELECTION STUDY, 1964 (ICPSR 7235), enabling researchers to test relationships between campaign activities in certain counties and reported political attitudes a nd behavior of cross-section respondents living in those counties. These data can be merged with the AMERICAN NATIONAL ELECTION STUDY, 1964, as the county codes used in the two studies are identical. This study dealt with county-level campaigns before the 1964 election. Much of the data consist of rankings by county party chairmen of the importance of various campaign activities carried out in their counties in 1964 and evaluations of their effectiveness, with special emphasis on fundraising methods. In addition, the county chairmen were questioned about their perceptions of the other major party's operations in the county. Other data include estimates of the percentage of contributions of different sizes each party received, the structure and extent of county political organization, a total assessment of all activities, and responses given to open-ended questions on the campaign in general, again with emphasis on financial and solicitation problems, organization, and techniques.
