Summary
This data collection focuses on issues related to the verdict in District of Columbia's mayor Marion Barry's trial. Respondents were asked if they thought Barry had received a fair trial, if the jury had done a good job, and if the federal government's investigation that led to Barry's indictment was racially motivated. They were also asked if they thought the news coverage of the Barry case had been generally fair, if the trial increased or decreased racial tensions in the District, and if Barry should have to serve some time in jail. Other questions investigated opinions on whether Barry should run for mayor or city council, whether he should be re-tried on some of the charges that the jury could not reach a verdict on, whether he should resign, and whether United States Attorney Jay Stephens should resign. Demographic variables include information on respondents' registered voter status, section of residence in the District, age, education, race, sex, and income
