This study is part of a time-series collection of national surveys fielded continuously since 1952. The American National 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. The data for this collection are derived from an interviewing program across three studies: the 1956 Presidential Pre- and Post-Election (AMERICAN NATIONAL ELECTION STUDY, 1956 [ICPSR 7214]), 1958 Congressional (AMERICAN NATIONAL ELECTION STUDY, 1958 [ICPSR 7215]), and 1960 Presidential Pre- and Post-Election Studies (AMERICAN NATIONAL ELECTION STUDY, 1960 [ICPSR 7216]).
