CBS News/New York Times Monthly Poll #1, January 1994 (ICPSR 6589)
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. Topics included the state of the United States economy, economic aid to Russia, and immigration. Respondents were also asked historical questions on World War II and the Holocaust, including who the supreme allied commander was, which nations the United States fought against, and the use of the first atomic bomb. In addition, respondents were asked to give their predictions on the future of the Russian government and economy and to supply their opinions of Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, Boris Yeltsin, and Vladimir Zhirinovsky. Background information on respondents includes voter registration status, household composition, vote choice in the 1992 presidential election, political party, political orientation, education, age, sex, race, religious preference, and family income.

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]).
