Principal Investigator(s): CBS News

Summary:

This poll, fielded in June 2013, is a part of a continuing series of monthly surveys that solicits public opinion on a range of political and social issues. Opinions were gathered about the likelihood of a terrorist attack in the United States in the coming months. Respondents were also asked if the government is infringing on privacy, if they are worried about losing their own privacy, and if they approve of government collection of phone and Internet records in the name of reducing terrorism. There are also a series of questions regarding cellular and landline telephone use. Demographic information includes age, race, ethnicity, marital status, education level, household income, type of residential area (e.g., urban or rural), voter registration status, political party affiliation, political philosophy, and Tea Party affiliation.

Methodology

Sample:    This poll was conducted by telephone from June 9-10, 2013 among 1,015 adults nationwide. Data collection was conducted on behalf of CBS News by Social Science Research Solutions of Media, Pennsylvania. Phone numbers were dialed from samples of both standard land-line and cell phones. The error due to sampling for results based on the entire sample could be plus or minus three percentage points. The error for subgroups may be higher. Interviews were conducted in English and Spanish. This poll release conforms to the Standards of Disclosure of the National Council on Public Polls.

Time Method:    Cross-sectional

Weight:    The data contain a weight variable (WEIGHT) that should be used in analyzing the data. According to the CBS News Web site, the data were weighted to match the 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. In addition to these procedures, ICPSR performed the following processing steps for this data collection:

  • Created variable labels and/or value labels.
  • Created online analysis version with question text.
  • Checked for undocumented or out-of-range codes.
