Political Participation of Students in Five Italian Universities, 1966 (ICPSR 7306)

Principal Investigator(s): Martinotti, Guido; Balbo, Laura; Beccalli, Bianca; Sivini, Giordano


This study presents data collected from students at five universities in Italy: Ancona (approximately 870 respondents), Milan (approximately 3,493 respondents), Pavia (approximately 1,447 respondents), Sassari (approximately 111 respondents), and Trieste (approximately 1,640 respondents). The interviews gathered detailed information on the respondents and their families, including city of origin and socioeconomic status. Questions probed respondents' interest in associations, their professional goals, and their educational performance. Other variables assessed the degree of familiarity that the respondents and their families had with the city where they studied. The interview was concluded with a few questions on the students' work experiences. Demographic data include sex, marital status, number of children, and year of birth.
