Version V1

This study was designed as a two-wave panel investigation of the 1971 election for the Second Chamber of Parliament in the Netherlands. The first wave was completed during the election campaign, and the second wave was conducted after the April 28, 1971, election date. Of the 2,495 respondents, 1,980 were reinterviewed in the second wave. The questions focused on the respondents' partisan preferences, political participation, and attitudes on political issues. The respondents were asked about problems in society and in their localities. In addition, they were asked to assess the performance of the political parties. Demographic data include age, sex, marital status, number of children, level of education, employment status and occupation, union membership, and religious preference.
