Comments: This study is on ICPSR Periodic Release 97003. The Periodic Release CD-ROM is a product designed for use on a Windows- or DOS-based personal computer and is intended for use as a means of data distribution. It may also be used within the Macintosh environment utilizing either system 7.0 and above or system 6.08 and the appropriate PC emulation software. The CD-ROM does not contain software for text or data searches, extraction or analyses. The files with the .EXE extension are self extracting files that were generated using Info-ZIP's ZIP compressor/archiver and PKWARE's ZIP2EXE utility for generating self-extracting files.

Abstract: This survey was undertaken as part of a larger project to study the political attitudes and behavior of the Canadian electorate. Conducted immediately after the 1993 federal election, the survey represents one of a series of interlocking panel studies (see POLITICAL SUPPORT IN CANADA, 1983-1988 [ICPSR 9874] and POLITICAL SUPPORT IN CANADA, 1990 [ICPSR 6309]). Respondents were queried about their political party preferences and were asked to identify the most important issues of the 1993 election. The survey also gauged attitudes toward Canadian political parties and party leaders, the federal government, the federal civil service, the federal courts, the federal parliament, provincial governments, governments in general, Canada in general, and the North American Free Trade Agreement with the United States. In addition, respondents were asked how closely they followed politics and how they voted in the 1993 election. Also included are demographic characteristics of the respondents, such as age, gender, education, and income.
