For this study, conducted in 1967-1968, university students in French- and English-speaking areas of Canada, in the United States, and in France were surveyed. Data were obtained from 235 respondents in English-speaking Canada (interviewed at the University of British Columbia), 199 French Canadians (interviewed at the University of Montreal and Laval University), 166 Americans (interviewed at the University of Washington in Seattle), and 166 French students from universities in Paris, Strasbourg, and Lyon. Students were asked to evaluate a variety of terms using a revised form of Osgood's semantic differential. The respondents were thus requested to locate themselves, as well as names of politicians, states, and selected political concepts, in a left-to-right space presented visually as extending from the left side to the right side of the questionnaire page. Also included in the survey instrument were questions on party preference and on specific political, social, economic, and religious problems. Demographic variables cover sex, age, religion, and father's occupation.
