This data collection represents a pre-test of a presidential election questionnaire and includes questions purposefully made to be similar to questions found in the American National Election Studies. In March of 1994, 400 adults in the Paris, France, region were queried about the upcoming elections--in particular, their "respect" for specific candidates, approval/disapproval of the current prime minister and president, and opinion of the current government economic policy. General attitudes toward women, immigrants, religion, and crime were also elicited along with basic respondent background information such as voter status, voting history, political self-identification, party affiliation, sex, age, education level, income level, employment, and occupation.
