French National Election Study, 1967 (ICPSR 7372)

Principal Investigator(s): Converse, Philip E., University of Michigan; Pierce, Roy, University of Michigan


This post-election study focused on French citizens' attitudes toward politics, partisan preferences, and problems facing France. Respondents were asked about their participation in the election campaign, their interest in politics, their voting history, and other political activities. They were also asked to evaluate the performance of political parties on particular policies. Another section of the survey probed the respondents' perceptions of representation and the responsibility of the representatives to their constituents. Demographic data include sex, age, level of education, marital status, religion, occupation, union membership, and monthly income level.
