Summary
This study was conducted as part of the "Support for Democratic Polities: The Case of Canada" study funded by the United States National Science Foundation. Its purpose was to study the political attitudes and behavior of the Canadian electorate. The 1990 survey represented one of a series of interlocking panels, the others being 1988 pre- and post-election surveys (see POLITICAL SUPPORT IN CANADA, 1983-1988 [ICPSR 9874]) and the 1993 post-election survey. The 1990 survey's 161 variables are derived from an extensive battery of questions on respondents' evaluations of national and personal economies and their support for national political authorities and for regional and community politics. Respondents were asked to indicate how closely they followed politics, how much they discussed and participated in politics, and how warm or cool (on a 100-degree scale) they felt toward the country, their community, and government at several levels, including political parties and party leaders. They were asked to state their agreement or disagreement with a number of attitudinal statements regarding taxes, equal treatment of citizens by the federal government, equal representation and opportunities for participation in government, and economic opportunity. Specific opinions were obtained on the Meech Lake Accord, the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), and the separation of Quebec. A number of questions asked respondents to assess their own economic welfare as well as its relation to the federal government's management of the national economy. Membership in national and regional parties was identified. Also included are demographic characteristics of respondents, such as occupation, education, language, age, life satisfaction, and income
