The Swedish Election Study, 1960, was conducted by the Institute of Political Science, the University of Goteborg, Sweden, as part of a political behavior research program that studied Riksdag (parliamentary) elections in the period 1956-1970. This study carried out an electorate survey in two stages with two different subsamples. Respondents in Subsample A were interviewed before the election, and were asked to complete a short mail-in questionnaire after the election. Subsample B was only interviewed in the weeks immediately following the election. Information was gathered about the respondents' communities, their position and mobility within those communities, and their exposure to the information media (television, local and national newspapers, radio, magazines, and political pamphlets). Respondents were also asked to rate their interest in various topics such as crime, political news, international news, sports, editorials, and economics, and to relate their opinions on the media and these topics to the 1960 election. Questions also probed respondents' reactions to existing political issues and to the government's related policies. Demographic data include sex, marital status, year of marriage, year of birth, income, spouse's income, and family income.
