Version V1

This study was conducted from February through June 1972, following the 1971 federal election in Switzerland. Questions probed respondents' attitudes toward elections and political parties as well as their political preferences. Other items assessed opinions on contemporary issues such as the organization of referenda, women's right to vote, and the Schwarzenbach initiative (a parliamentary action of conservative extremists, demanding that one-third of Switzerland's foreign workers be forced to leave the country and that aliens compose no more than 10 percent of the population in any canton). Demographic data include age, sex, education, ethnic background, and family background.
