Abstract

The Danish Election Study 1975 was carried out in connection with the general election on 9 January, 1975. Some of the questions are replications of questions asked in previous election studies from 1971 and 1973 (see DDA-0007 and DDA-0008), but the survey population is different. The respondents were asked how they voted at the last two general elections (in January 1975 and in December 1973), and how they would vote at a hypothetical election the day after the interview; they were asked about their government preferences and party affiliation, and for a rating of the political parties in Denmark on a so-called 'feeling thermometer'. Furthermore, the study contains questions about the most important problems for the politicians to solve; the respondent's interest in politics in general and the election campaign on the radio and on TV in particular, and the respondent's participation in political discussions in connection with the election; the respondent's attitude to the EC and to a number of statements concerning the economic situation, politics and politicians as well as other current issues; reading habits, i.e. what newspapers, magazines, etc. the respondent reads; means of transport; access to a number of durables in the household; and consumption of a number of goods
