Political Support in Canada, 1993 (ICPSR 6891)

Principal Investigator(s): Clarke, Harold D.; Kornberg, Allan


This survey was undertaken as part of a larger project to study the political attitudes and behavior of the Canadian electorate. Conducted immediately after the 1993 federal election, the survey represents one of a series of interlocking panel studies (see POLITICAL SUPPORT IN CANADA, 1983-1988 [ICPSR 9874] and POLITICAL SUPPORT IN CANADA, 1990 [ICPSR 6309]). Respondents were queried about their political party preferences and were asked to identify the most important issues of the 1993 election. The survey also gauged attitudes toward Canadian political parties and party leaders, the federal government, the federal civil service, the federal courts, the federal parliament, provincial governments, governments in general, Canada in general, and the North American Free Trade Agreement with the United States. In addition, respondents were asked how closely they followed politics and how they voted in the 1993 election. Also included are demographic characteristics of the respondents, such as age, gender, education, and income.
