"Database merges voter registration and election returns to the census data. Voter registration data as well as electoral returns, however, are collected in precincts, whose boundaries change in many cases in every election. Thus in order to compare political behavior over time, the Database aggregates voting, registration, and census data up to a common geographical level, and then breaks them down - or disaggregates them - to the census block"--Statewide database web page, "What are the data?"

A study designed to descibe and explain the rates of political participation among adult Blacks in the South, including voting behavior, political discussion, degree of political organizational activity, participation in demonstrations, and communication with public officials as modes of political participation. Specific variables pertain to black leadership, effectiveness of black organizations, attitudes of white leaders and officials, the effect of electoral laws on black participation, perceptions of the major parties, party identification, and feelings on race relations. Information was obtained from a white adult sample of 694 respondents, a black adult sample of 618 respondents, and a black college student sample of 264 respondents. Data were collected by interviewers of the same race as the respondent in March-August 1961 for the adult samples and January-March 1962, for the student sample. Identical questions were asked of the two adult samples.

The American National Election Studies are national surveys carried out by the Survey Research Center (SRC) or by the Center for Political Studies (CPS) of The Institute for Social Research at The University of Michigan. They are based on multistage representative cross-section samples of citizens of voting age, living in private households. Each study contains information from interviews conducted with 1,000 to 2,000 respondents. The samples are representative of the four major regions (Northeast, North Central, South, and West) of the coterminous United States. The 1972 election study was a major interdisciplinary project covering public attitudes in a wide range of areas. Questions dealing with women's liberation, racial attitudes, and the relations of various social groups were asked in addition to the traditional election study topics. Additionally, data on economic attitudes, payment of federal income tax, feelings about the quality of life, and various cultural attitudes were obtained.

The focus of the study was on several dimensions of political participation both at the national and local levels. In addition, basic background information was obtained and respondents were asked to discuss recent important changes and problems within their communities, group relations within their communities, and to evaluate the local and national political systems.
