Abstract: This survey is part of a series of surveys directed by the British Election Study at the University of Essex from 1974 to 1979, and is a continuation of a previous series of surveys covering the general elections from 1964 to 1970 conducted at Nuffield College, Oxford. Personal interviews were conducted with 1893 respondents in the weeks immediately following the May 3, 1979 election. Interviews lasted an average of seventy-eight minutes. There are 1893 cases in the data file and eight cards per case. SPSS control cards accompany the data file. NOTE: These data were provided by the Social Science Research Council Survey Archive, University of Essex, England. In accordance with an agreement with SSRC the data and accompanying documentation are disseminated exactly as received without modification by ICPSR. This agreement also provides that ICPSR will disseminate the data only for use within ordering institutions and that additional copies of the documentation must be obtained from SSRC rather than from the Consortium.
