CBS News/60 Minutes/Vanity Fair National Poll, July #2, 2011 (ICPSR 34457)
Principal Investigator(s): CBS News; 60 Minutes; Vanity Fair
This poll, fielded July of 2011 and the second of two, is a part of a continuing series of monthly surveys that solicits public opinion on a range of political and social issues. Respondents were asked whether they had children who had been bullied, and whether the bullying had occurred on the internet, via text message, or at school. Respondents were also asked if their children's school had a specific policy that dealt with bullying, and how effective that policy was. Multiple questions addressed the use of social networking accounts by children. Additional topics included the whether the country is on the right track, pop culture, whether Pakistan is an ally of the United States, and their knowledge of and relationship to an individual killed in the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack. Demographic variables include sex, age, race, education level, household income, religious preference, type of residential area (e.g., urban or rural), whether respondents thought of themselves as born-again Christians, marital status, employment status, number of children, number of people in the household between the ages of 18 and 29 years old, political party affiliation, political philosophy, and voter registration status.

Scope of Study
Subject Terms: bullying, celebrities, cellular phones, children, foreign policy, Gore, Al, Internet, nuclear weapons, same-sex marriage, schools, social networks, text messages, tourism, travel, weather
Smallest Geographic Unit: congressional district
Geographic Coverage: United States
Date of Collection:
Unit of Observation: individual
Universe: Persons aged 18 years and older living in households with telephones in the United States.
Data Types: survey data
Sample: A variation of random-digit dialing (RDD) 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. Phone numbers were dialed from RDD samples of both standard land-lines and cell phones. 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).
Time Method: Cross-sectional
Weight: The data contain a weight variable that should be used in analyzing the data. According to the CBS News Web site, the data were weighted to match United States Census Bureau breakdowns on age, sex, race, education, and region of the country. The data were also adjusted for the fact that people who share a telephone with others have less chance to be contacted than people who live alone and have their own telephones, and that households with more than one telephone number have more chances to be called than households with only one telephone number.
Mode of Data Collection: telephone interview
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.
