Summary
Supplementary Empirical Teaching Units in Political Science (SETUPS) for American Politics are computer-related modules designed for use in teaching introductory courses in American government and politics. The modules are intended to demonstrate the process of examining evidence and reaching conclusions and to stimulate students to independent, critical thinking and a deeper understanding of substantive content. They enable students with no previous training to make use of the computer to analyze data on political behavior. The data for this module were taken from the pre- and post-election surveys of the AMERICAN NATIONAL ELECTION STUDY, 1984 (ICPSR 8298), conducted by Warren E. Miller and the National Election Studies Board. Only respondents who completed both waves of the survey were included in this subset. Variables provide information on respondents' level of political involvement and knowledge of political issues, and their opinions of the 1984 presidential candidates, Ronald Reagan and Walter Mondale, and the vice-presidential candidates, George Bush and Geraldine Ferraro. Also included are respondents' views on the economy, domestic and foreign affairs, and their general political attitudes and beliefs. Demographic items specify age, sex, race, marital status, education, occupation, income, social class identification, religion, and size and type of community in which respondents resided
