Abstract: This data collection focuses on the relationship between media usage (particularly viewership of the national nightly news programs) and public opinion on issues of national importance. The collection is based on 30 national opinion surveys aggregated into one data file (the individual surveys may be analyzed separately using a data range or wave number of 1-30). Respondents were polled between September 1992 and May 1993, a time of great interest in French public opinion and political behavior, with the referendum on the Maastricht Treaty in September 1992 and a national parliamentary election in March 1993. Areas of investigation include media attention and usage, voting behavior, satisfaction with the government's performance, and perceptions of the most pressing national issues (e.g., the top problems facing France at the time of the telephone interview, the causes of these problems, and responsibility for solving the problems). Demographic variables include age, gender, profession, and education.
