Abstract: This poll queried residents in the state of New Jersey on topics such as crime, taxes, and schools. Those surveyed were asked to rate New Jersey and their own towns as places to live and to assess race relations in their communities. Questions covered specific aspects of the respondents' lives such as dining out, shopping in a mall, reading books, exercising, renting movie videos, going out to movies, drinking alcoholic beverages, and playing the lottery. Respondents were also asked if they owned items such as cellular phones, personal computers, pets, foreign cars, stocks and mutual funds, musical instruments, library cards, barbecue grills, and electronic pagers. Background information on respondents includes voter registration status, household composition, vote choice in the 1992 presidential election, political party, political orientation, education, age, sex, race, religious preference, and family income.
