Version V1

For this survey, conducted following the 1968 Italian parliamentary elections, a representative stratified national sample was drawn from lists of voters in electoral precincts across the country. Interviews were conducted with 2,500 respondents about their political behavior and attitudes, party identification, and union and other organizational memberships. The influence of family and religious ties on political attitudes and behavior was probed, as were the effects of the multi-party structure and the impact of the mass media on Italian political life. Respondents were asked to place the different political parties along a left-right continuum and to place themselves along this continuum as well. This study also included interviews, conducted at the same time as the mass election survey, with a small elite sample of deputies and municipal councillors, but ICPSR does not distribute these data. Demographic information about respondents includes age, occupation, full-time work status, and occupation and political beliefs of father.
