Abstract: This dataset consists of seven parts, six individual country files, and a comparative cross-national file. Personal surveys were conducted from 1967 to 1971 in seven nations. A set of core questions was designed to ascertain political participation in both local and national affairs. Items were constructed to measure respondents' involvement in political organizations at both the local and national levels, participation in formal and informal community groups, the extent of individual contact with public officials, attitudes toward recent political and social changes, and respondents' interest in the political process. Basic demographic data is included. In addition, each national survey contains some items unique to that particular study. AUSTRIA: 1,769 cases, 417 variables. INDIA: 2,637 cases, 387 variables. JAPAN: 2,657 cases, 275 variables. THE NETHERLANDS: 1,746 cases, 474 variables. NIGERIA: 2,169 cases, 321 variables. UNITED STATES: See ICPSR 7015 YUGOSLAVIA: 2,995 cases, 235 variables. CROSS-NATIONAL FILE: 16,522 cases, 44 variables. (All seven countries are included.) The files are available in OSIRIS or card-image format. SPSS control cards are also available for use with the card-image file. The documentation is machine readable. ABC News and the Washington Post have been partners in a series of public opinion polls and have made this data available through ICPSR. These polls are conducted monthly by Chilton Research Services and collect information on the United States public's attitudes about various public issues. The collections which deal with political issues are described below. Other ABC News/Washington Post collections can be found in other locations in the Guide, classified according to their subject. See the Principal Investigator Index in the back of this Guide for further references.
