description:
The survey focuses on the attitudes of individual voters and how these influenced their choices on ballot measures to limit taxes and government spending in California. The investigator's approach was to assess directly, the motives of the general public. Data were collected in November and December 1979 using computer-assisted telephone interviewing (CATI) technique. The sample was drawn using random digit dialing procedure. There are 1788 respondents. Topics include attitudes about Proposition 13, the Gann amendment, and the Jarvis amendment. There are questions on tax activism, vote frequency views about size of government, government spending, salaries and wages of government workers. Variables on self-interest, party identification, liberal/conservative scale, attitudes on race, trust in government, and job approval rating of elected officials are also included, along with basic demographic items.
