The original data were collected by the Survey Research Center, University of California at Berkeley, while the subsample was provided by the Social Science Data Center at the University of Connecticut. The subsample for the present study was randomly drawn and the 14,139 respondents were weighted to 1,312,178. Undergraduates were asked to provide information regarding their social and educational backgrounds, as well as their degree and career plans. Variables also elicited students' opinions on their institutions and departments, on educational policy in general, and on broad social and political issues. Demographic data cover age, sex, race, religion, marital status, birthplace, family income, and parents' levels of education.
