Abstract
This study is part of a larger investigation that focused on political awareness and participation in Botswana. Three separate surveys were conducted, with an elite sample (SURVEY OF BOTSWANA POLITICAL PARTICIPATION, 1970: ELITE SAMPLE [ICPSR 7350]), a sample of the adult population ((SURVEY OF BOTSWANA POLITICAL PARTICIPATION, 1970: MASS SAMPLE [ICPSR 7362]), and a sample of secondary school students (the present study). The questionnaire elicited views on the structure of local and national decision-making processes and the relationship between traditional (tribal) and modern (elected) loci of power. Variables assessed respondents' perceptions of the power structure, their participation in local politics and other decision-making processes, their political knowledge, and views of community cohesion. Demographic data include age, sex, religion, tribal affiliation, intra-tribal class, media usage, parents' occupations, and sources of income.
