Summary
This study is part of a time-series collection of national electoral surveys fielded continuously since 1948. The American National Election Studies are designed to present data on Americans' social backgrounds, enduring political predispositions, social and political values, perceptions and evaluations of groups and candidates, opinions on questions of public policy, and participation in political life. The 1992 National Election Study entailed both a pre- and a post-election interview. Approximately half of the study cases are empaneled respondents who were first interviewed in the AMERICAN NATIONAL ELECTION STUDY, 1990: POST-ELECTION SURVEY (ICPSR 9548) and later in the AMERICAN NATIONAL ELECTION STUDY: 1990-1991 PANEL STUDY OF THE POLITICAL CONSEQUENCES OF WAR/1991 PILOT STUDY (ICPSR 9673). The other half of the cases are a freshly drawn cross-section sample. The panel component of the study design provides an opportunity to examine how the changing fortunes of the Bush presidency - from the high levels of approval at the start of the Gulf War to the decline in popularity after the onset of an economic recession - affected voting in the November 1992 presidential election. It also permits analysts to investigate the origins of the Clinton and Perot coalitions as well as changes in the public's political preferences over the two years preceding the 1992 election. The 1990 Post-election Survey used two forms of the data collection instrument, with about 75 percent of the content being the same on both forms. The survey included the standard National Election Studies battery of questions, along with items on presidential performance and the Persian Gulf conflict. Additionally, Form A contained questions relating to values and individualism, while Form B had items about foreign relations. In 1991, panel respondents were re-interviewed several months after the end of hostilities in the Persian Gulf, and in this second wave the survey repeated a subset of questions from the 1990 Post-election Survey, along with additional items especially relevant to the Gulf War. A number of contextual variables are also provided, including summary variables that compare the respondent's recall of his or her senator's and representative's vote on the use of force with that congressperson's actual vote. The content of the 1992 Election Study reflects its dual purpose, as a traditional presidential election year time-series survey and the third wave of a panel study. In addition to the standard or core content items, respondents were asked about their positions on social issues such as altruism, abortion, the death penalty, prayer in schools, the rights of homosexuals, sexual harassment, women's rights, and feminism. Other substantive themes included racial and ethnic stereotypes, opinions on school integration and affirmative action, attitudes toward immigrants (particularly Hispanics and Asians), opinions on immigration policy and bilingual education, assessments of the United States' foreign policy goals, and the United States' involvement in the Persian Gulf War. DS2: Nonresponse Bias Data File was designed to facilitate analyses of the causes and consequences of non-response. Of the 3,690 cases presented in the file, 2,485 are complete or partial interviews, 497 are refusals, 64 are no-contact, 213 are other types of non-interviews, and 431 are non-sample cases (including households without an eligible respondent)
