description:
Respondents were interviewed for this cross-section survey following the 1992 British General Election. Part 1, Main Data File, covers the political and social attitudes and life experiences of the respondents, including their political interests and party preferences, opinions on comparisons between various parties, employment and union affiliations, and life satisfaction. Numerous questions are replications from previous British Election Studies and British Social Attitudes Surveys. The "international" scales in the cross-section personal interview questionnaire were taken from previous American National Election Studies. In addition, a split-sample experiment was conducted to detect whether there was a question-order effect, with respect to whether respondents were asked first about their vote and then about their party identification or vice versa. Demographic data such as sex, age, region, and religious preference appear in this file as well. Part 2, Sample Demographic File, includes information on sex, age, and region of residence for all 5,232 persons in the original sample.
