This study is part of a time-series collection of national surveys fielded continuously since 1952. The election studies are designed to present data on Americans' social backgrounds, enduring political predispositions, social and political values, perceptions and evaluations of groups and candidates, opinions on questions of public policy, and participation in political life. This pilot was conducted to develop new instrumentation for segments of the 1984 American National Election Study. New items were tested on several topics including economic well-being, group identification, values, political participation, and candidate affect. Telephone interviews were conducted in July, with reinterviews in August.
