Quebec Provincial and Federal Election Study, 1962: Rise of a Third Party (ICPSR 9003)

Principal Investigator(s): Pinard, Maurice


This survey was conducted a few months after the June 1962 federal election and just prior to the November 1962 Quebec provincial election. It provides information on respondents' voting intentions in the next Quebec provincial election and federal election, political affiliation of parents, general attitudes toward present Liberal provincial government compared to the Union Nationale, and their views on whether the Liberal government had fulfilled its election promises. Other questions elicited information on agriculture, unemployment, education, health, nationalization of companies, corruption, the budget deficit, government/church relations, opinions on various political issues, images of parties and party leaders, political knowledge and interest, partisanship, general political attitudes, present economic conditions and outlook, nationalism and separatism, and religiosity. Demographic information collected on respondents includes age, sex, country of birth, ethnicity, religion, marital status, number of children, education, employment status, occupation, social class identification, and father's occupation.
