Summary
Given the growing belief in the late 1970s that government spending was out of control, this study was conducted to obtain information concerning the behavior, attitudes, and characteristics of actual and potential voters about the costs and benefits of public sector spending and the accuracy of those perceptions. The state of Michigan provided a good environment for this study because the November 1978 ballot contained three distinct constitutional amendments whose purpose was to effect considerable change in the taxing and expenditure authority of Michigan's state and local governments and school districts. These ballot propositions were the Headlee Amendment, the Tisch Amendment, and the School Voucher Plan. This data collection consists of 2,001 completed telephone interviews, conducted in the two months following the November election, of a sample chosen to be representative of all Michigan residents aged 18 or older. Respondents were interviewed about their attitudes toward state and local government taxes and expenditures, government in general, and the three specific tax limitation amendments on the Michigan ballot. Respondents also were asked how they voted on the propositions and what they thought the probable effects of these propositions would be if adopted. Demographic and economic information on respondents was also collected, e.g., age, sex, ethnicity, occupation, employment status, income, tax payments, and education of children (i.e., number of their children in state-supported or private schools)....
