Dutch Parliamentary Election Study, 1986: Stratified Sample (ICPSR 9378) RSS

Principal Investigator(s):

Summary:

This study consists of a short post-election interview with a sample drawn from the Dutch electorate, stratified according to party preference. Many of the questions asked in this survey parallel those appearing in the DUTCH PARLIAMENTARY ELECTION STUDY, 1986 (ICPSR 8876). In addition, questions generated by hypotheses about the behavior of supporters of small political parties in general were also included. This collection also contains information from a weekly poll in which the respondents had participated earlier and which was used to stratify the sample. Topics covered include attitudes on political issues such as the economy, social security, euthanasia, nuclear armaments, and foreign workers, experiences with unemployment, religious views, and attitudes toward political parties and other factors important to party choice. Respondents also provided demographic information on income, sex, age, employment and union status, household composition, marital status, type of living quarters, and education.

Scope of Study

Methodology

Sample:   Information on party preference collected in a number of samples of the Dutch electorate in 1985 and 1986 was used to establish pools for drawing a stratified sample for telephone interviewing. Only respondents who indicated a specific party preference were included in one of 11 pools, which corresponded to both major and minor political parties in the Netherlands. Approximately 75 respondents from each pool were interviewed by telephone.
