Summary
This instructional package includes a student manual containing six exercises, an instructor's guide, and four subsets of data required for use in conjunction with the manual's exercises. The package's major purpose is to enable students to examine certain substantive questions about electoral behavior through analysis of political survey data. The manual avoids instruction in methodology, per se, hence the student is taken no further than the analysis of straightforward variables in percentagized tables with and without controls, and is introduced to epsilon, the percentage difference measures based on 2 X 2 tables, but offered no elaborate discussion of measures of association. The six structured exercises introduce the basic analytic techniques necessary for coping with survey data in the expectation that the students will then move on to their own topics. The datasets were designed to be both substantively and analytically interesting, as students are forced continually to make choices and judgments about which variables to use and how to combine code categories. Beyond this, the exercises serve a more complex purpose: to help the student gain a better understanding of the existing scholarly literature by going through steps similar to those of the original analysts. In some instances, the students can readily appreciate how close their work is to the analysis in assigned reading. The instructor's guide has two purposes: first, to help instructors use the student manual effectively, and second, to suggest various ways to depart from the six exercises and to develop essentially new manuals. The subsets (Parts 1-4) contain data from every presidential election survey that was conducted by the Survey Research Center (SRC) and Center for Political Studies (CPS) (at the University of Michigan) from 1952 to 1980. Part 4 contains an extensive set of variables drawn exclu... Cf.: http://dx.doi.org/10.3886/ICPSR07581
