Abstract
This data collection focuses on modes of political participation and social change in Zambia in 1974. It contains data gathered in a survey of 480 residents in the urban Lusaka District and 50 from two rural areas in the Eastern Province of Zambia, measuring political attitudes and participation at both a national and local level. The research builds upon the previous work of Sidney Verba and Norman H. Nie and is directly comparable to that found in the Yugoslav portion of POLITICAL PARTICIPATION AND EQUALITY IN SEVEN NATIONS, 1966-1971 (ICPSR 7768), the cross-national study of the modes of political participation. The Zambian survey included questions dealing with respondents' knowledge of local and national officials and items dealing with the most important problems facing both the nation and local areas. Other questions probed what actions could be taken to effect change in a law or regulation and if respondents had ever engaged in such actions. Other items concerned the respondents' political activity (e.g., contact with ward councillor, community development officials, section chairman, priests, MPs, government party officials, other organization officials, and President Kuanda, as well as participation in area projects) and attitudes about activists, community development, and the responsibilities of citizenship. Respondents were also asked to what extent they used three information sources: newspapers, radio, and television. Standard demographic and personal information, such as sex, age, marital status, tribal affiliation, occupation, income, union membership, education, religion, and residence, is included.Cf: http://doi.org/10.3886/ICPSR07589.v1
