This study queried respondents to the BRITISH ELECTION STUDY: CROSS-SECTION, 1987 (ICPSR 6452). The main focus was on the political and social attitudes and life experiences of the respondents, such as their political interests and party preferences, opinions on comparisons between various parties, their employment and union affiliations, and life satisfaction. Numerous questions were replications from previous British Election Studies and British Social Attitudes Surveys. This five-wave panel dataset was weighted to compensate to some extent for the effects of differential attrition. The aim was to make the various groups of the respondents at the different panel stages representative of the 1987 cross-sectional sample simply in terms of voting behavior.
