Abstract: The EEC Referendum Survey is part of a continuing series of surveys of the British electorate, begun at Nuffield College, Oxford, in 1963 and continued at the University of Essex. These studies are funded by the Social Science Research Council. 2,117 British electors responded to a postal questionnaire relating to their vote on the referendum taken in Spring 1974, about Britain's entry into the Common Market. The sample included all respondents interviewed in the British Election Study, October 1974, cross-section (See ICPSR 7870) and, thus, is the third wave of a panel, including also the February 1974 Cross-section (ICPSR 7868). There are 28 variables in this data collection and 1 card per case. SPSS control cards are available. These data were provided by the Social Science Research Council Survey Archive, University of Essex, England. The data and accompanying documentation are disseminated, under an agreement with the SSRC, exactly as they were received, without modification by ICPSR. This agreement also provides that ICPSR will disseminate these data only for use within ordering institutions and that users desiring multiple copies of the documentation must order them from the SSRC Survey Archive.
