Abstract
These instructional materials were prepared for use with AMERICAN NATIONAL ELECTION STUDIES CUMULATIVE DATA FILE, 1948-2000 (ICPSR 8475), compiled by Virginia Sapiro, Steven J. Rosenstone, and the National Election Studies. The data file (a Stata data file) and accompanying documentation are provided to assist educators in instructing students in continuity and change over time in the major determinants of American national elections. An instructors' handout has also been included, containing the following sections, among others: (1) an overview of the instructional module and an introduction to the use of Stata, (2) a discussion of, and exercises on, the influences of party identification on political behavior, including the sources of partisan identification, partisan change over time, and partisanship and voting, (3) a discussion of, and exercises on, the social characteristics of the American electorate, including major social groupings in the American electorate, who really votes, and the social composition of the political parties, (4) a discussion of, and exercises on, the influence of social and economic factors on political behavior, including who votes, the question of class bias in American politics, and the economic determinants of the vote, and (5) a bibliography of related readings. The dataset is a collection of certain common variables for selected federal elections between 1952 to 1996 taken from the National Election Study Cumulative file. Variables in the dataset include race, gender, religion, education level, other demographic information, economic status indicators, media exposure, political ideology, political behavior, attitudes toward salient public policies, and partisan identification.Cf: http://doi.org/10.3886/ICPSR03727.v1
