For this data collection, voters were interviewed as they left their polling places after voting in the 1993 mayoral election in New York City. Respondents were asked a series of questions covering mayoral choice for 1993 and 1989, choice for comptroller and public advocate in 1993, and how they voted on the term limitation proposal. Respondents were also asked for their opinions on the most important issues of the campaign, the most important candidate qualities, race relations in New York City, safety in New York City, level of commitment to the candidate they voted for, and the influence of race on their mayoral choice. Background information on respondents includes sex, race, age, family income range, religion, education, party identification, political spectrum self-identification, family financial situation, sexual orientation, gun ownership, marital status, employment status, labor union membership, and whether the respondent's children attended public school.
