Data Collection Notes:

Each dataset has a weight variable that must be used in all analyses. Part 3 is a question ordering experiment (2 interview schedules were used). Part 5 is a panel study of likely democratic voters interviewed during February 21-25, 1984 and during March 21-24, 1984. Part 7 contains an oversample of black adults. Part 19 is the vice presidential debate panel. The first wave was administered during September 12-15, 1984, and the short second wave questionnaire was asked on October 11, 1984. Part 21 is the pre-election/post-election panel. The first wave was administered during October 31-November 2, 1984 and the post-election wave was conducted during November 8-14, 1984. Part 24 covers the period of November 2-4, 1984 and was used by the New York Times exclusively. The format of the presidential debate files has been changed. CBS News/New York Times provided two new merged data files, one for each set of presidential debate surveys, to replace parts 11-14. Part 11 now contains both surveys concerning the first presidential debate (formerly parts 11 and 12). Part 12 now contains both surveys concerning the second presidential debate (formerly parts 13 and 14).
