This election study was carried out in three separate phases: March 18-25, April 26-May 5, and May 27-June 6 of 1981. The study investigated attitudes on Israel's national agenda, party stances, a voter model for the ideal political party, reasons for voter apathy, and the extent to which voters can influence political decisions. Background information on respondents includes age, gender, education, political orientation, marital/family status, employment status, social class, number of people in household, adherence to religious tradition, characteristics of place of residence, length of time as an Israeli resident, monthly household expenses, and contact with media sources.
