Attitudes Toward Electoral Accountability: A Data-Driven Learning Guide (ICPSR 334)
Principal Investigator(s): Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research
Data-Driven Learning Guides are a collection of instructional exercises that can be used to enhance teaching of core concepts in the social sciences. This learning guide investigates attitudes about government accountability and their relationship to political participation in the United States. Research questions that can be explored using this learning guide include: whether beliefs about electoral accountability are related to beliefs about say in government, whether people who believe that elections increase accountability for voters are more likely to keep informed about activity and public affairs, how many people believe government officials care about what they think, and whether people who believe that elections increase accountability for voters are more likely to vote. Crosstabulation is used in the analyses.
