Abstract

The Danish Pre-Election and Post-Election Study 1971 is a two-wave panel study, which was carried out in connection with the general election on 21 September, 1971. #The first wave, which was carried out in August 1971, before the writs of the election were issued, examines the views, interests and habits of the population in a politically 'normal' situation. The first wave contains questions about the respondent's interests in general and political interest in particular and sources of information used in connection with these interests; time spent on reading newspapers, watching TV and listening to the radio, as well as special areas of interest in connection with these activities; attitudes to a large number of current problems, in particular the respondent's attitude to the EC; and, finally, the respondent's rating of the political parties in Denmark with a personal assessment of each political party's affiliation to specific social groups. #The second wave, which was carried out in October 1971, examines the decision-making process and the factors influencing the respondent. The second wave contains questions about the respondent's political interest and the respondent's preferences as regards sources of information (i.e. media) in connection with the respondent's political interest; the degree to which the respondent has been interested in the election campaign on the radio, on TV and in the newspapers, etc., as well as the respondent's participation in political discussions with friends and acquaintances; the respondent's participation, or non-participation, in previous elections, possible affiliation to one political party and party changes, if any; attitudes to current problems, in particular political problems, and the respondent's personal part in politics, as well as the respondent's attitude to the EC; and, finally, the respondent's rating of the political parties in Denmark and the respondent's attitude (sympathy/dislike) to a number of social groups and politicians. #Some of the respondents from the original sample were interviewed once more after the general election on 4 December, 1973 (cf. DDA-0008: Danish Election Study 1973)
