This study is part of a time-series collection of national surveys fielded continuously since 1952. The election studies are designed to present data on Americans' social backgrounds, enduring political predispositions, social and political values, perceptions and evaluations of groups and candidates, opinions on questions of public policy, and participation in political life. In addition to the usual content, the study contains specific inquiries into the impact of the mass media, perceptions of the financial, business, and economic conditions of the nation, and measures of personal esteem, trust, and quality of life.
