Version V1

This study comprises responses to a questionnaire mailed in 1970 to a nationwide sample of seven academic professional groups: botanists, classicists, economists, geologists, lawyers, political scientists, and sociologists. These particular academic disciplines were selected in an effort to obtain a cross-section of the academic community. The questionnaire elicited information regarding respondents' political party preferences, reasons for their party preferences, previous voting in presidential elections, political activity, and political ideology. Demographic data include year of birth, religion, academic rank, academic salary, state of birth, state of residence, father's occupation and ethnicity, parents' party affiliation, and parents' religion.
