STUDY DESIGN HIGHLIGHTS:
The 1966 ANES is a traditional time series study, conducted face-to-face and constituting a representative national sample drawn using area probability sampling. It was conducted in conjunction with the Survey Research Center Economic Behavior Program's quarterly survey on consumer outlook and was administered using a combined questionnaire serving both surveys. The 1966 ANES excludes questions from the questionnaire (section B) which were specifically gathered for the EBP survey alone.
Administration of the post-election interview began immediately after the November 8 elections, and continued until January 31, 1967. 1,291 completions were yielded from 1,674 eligible in the sample.
