This study focused on the respondents' voting behavior in the 1961 and 1965 elections in the Federal Republic of Germany and the reasons for their voting decisions in 1965. The respondents' reliance on and confidence in a variety of political information sources were also measured, as well as their levels of political interest. The survey included scalometers used to evaluate the major political figures of 1965. Semantic differential measures and scalometers probed the respondents' opinions of the major political parties. Demographic variables include sex, age, marital status, religious preference, education, occupation, and membership in voluntary associations.
