This survey consists of interviews with 1,051 respondents conducted in the summer and fall of 1979 following the May 10 (provincial) and May 22 (federal) elections, and 808 telephone reinterviews in February 1980 immediately after the federal election of February 18, 1980. There are three types of data provided in this collection. The first includes extensive workforce participation information for respondent and household members, in-depth analysis of issue positions, links to party and other measures of voting, party identification, political participation, political culture, and strategic or "sophisticated" voting. The second type of information involves electoral data from the polling divisions and constituencies in which respondents were interviewed. The third type of data pertains to the social composition of neighborhoods and was derived from the 1976 Census. Demographic information on each respondent includes age, sex, race, religion, birthplace, education, language spoken at home, and first language learned.
