description:
This study was conducted (1) to analyze the interaction between medium-term economic and short-term political factors and the ways in which they determine the outcome of elections, and (2) to explore election campaign dynamics and how the process of modernization and professionalization of campaign communications has affected the role of political leaders, the media, and the political trust and knowledge of voters. For the study, adults aged 17 years and over living in Great Britain (excluding Scotland north of the Caledonian Canal) were surveyed over four waves. Wave A, fielded during spring/summer 1996, consisted of personal interviews with 3,662 respondents. Subsequent waves were conducted through telephone interviews. Wave B, fielded April 1-16, 1997, consisted of interviews with 1,800 respondents, while Wave C, fielded April 17-30, 1997, consisted of interviews with 1,809 respondents. Wave D, conducted during May 1997 after the 1997 election, interviewed 2,047 respondents. Background information on respondents includes age, sex, race, ethnicity, political party, political orientation, number of members in the household, marital status, social class, employment history, health insurance status, citizenship, voter registration status, lottery/gambling participation, household income, and housing and neighborhood conditions.
