This poll is part of a continuing series of monthly surveys that solicit public opinion on the presidency and on a range of other political and social issues. Respondents were asked to give their opinions of President George W. Bush and his handling of the presidency, the campaign against terrorism, and the economy, as well as their views on the nation's economy, the stock market, and their personal investments. Respondents also answered questions about the frequency of their air travels, armed air marshals aboard commercial flights, and armed pilots. A series of questions focused on the December 1996 murder of the child beauty queen JonBenet Ramsey, from Boulder, Colorado. Respondents were asked to give their opinions of major league baseball, the possibility of a baseball strike, its outcome, baseball players' salaries, baseball team owners' profits, and reports of steroid use in major league baseball. Background information includes respondents' political affiliation, marital status, number of household members, religion, education, age, race, income, and gender.

Data Collection Notes:
This collection has not been processed by ICPSR staff. ICPSR is distributing the data and documentation for this collection in essentially the same form in which they were received. When appropriate, documentation has been converted to Portable Document Format (PDF), data files have been converted to non-platform-specific formats, and variables have been recoded to ensure respondents' anonymity.
The ASCII data file may have been replaced if the previous version was formatted with multiple records per case. A frequency file, which contains the authoritative column locations, has been added to the collection.
Sample: A variation of random-digit dialing using primary sampling units (PSUs) was employed, consisting of blocks of 100 telephone numbers identical through the eighth digit and stratified by geographic region, area code, and size of place. Within households, respondents were selected using a method developed by Leslie Kish and modified by Charles Backstrom and Gerald Hursh (see Backstrom and Hursh, SURVEY RESEARCH [Evanston, IL: Northwestern University Press, 1963]).
Extent of Processing: ICPSR data undergo a confidentiality review and are altered when necessary to limit the risk of disclosure. ICPSR also routinely creates ready-to-go data files along with setups in the major statistical software formats as well as standard codebooks to accompany the data. In addition to these procedures, ICPSR performed the following processing steps for this data collection:
- Created variable labels and/or value labels.
