Version V1

This data collection examines the attitudes of Michigan members of Common Cause, the American Civil Liberties Union, the League of Women Voters, and the Conservative Caucus. The data file is comprised of four components, one for each public interest group -- thus, each respondent may have up to four records one for each interest group. Each component contains the same 29 variables. Respondents were queried regarding their reasons for joining the organizations, level of activism, level of satisfaction with the group, plans for membership renewal, knowledge of the group's issues, and extent of involvement in organizational issues. Gender, age, education, and occupation of the members are also included in the data.
