Help with a small reseach project: What issues are most imporant to you this election?
Edited on Sat Mar-15-08 04:45 AM by Political Heretic
Hello! I'm hoping DU will take some time out from other stuff and help me with a little research experiment I'm working on. If I get enough responses, I'm going to code these answers and dump them into SPSS and see if anything interesting happens. Because I need to quantify this in some way, I'm going to have to give you a list of options to choose from.

The responses should be interesting. If I get a lot of responses like I would really like, then I'll come back later and give you the statistical results I found.

PLEASE NOTE: You can PM your answers to me privately if you feel uncomfortable publicly disclosing any of this information

PART 1: Gathering Personal Information
The purpose of this is for the sake of looking for any patterns between issue importance and gender, age, income and ethnicity.

1. Which would best describe your gender identity?
- Male
- Female
- Other (if you're laughing, google intersex and learn.)

2. Which would best describe your age:
-0-19 years
-20-39 years
-40-59 years
-60-89 years
-90+ years

3. Which would best describe your ethnicity
- Anglo / White
- Black
- Hispanic
- Asian
- Native American
- Other

4. Which would best your individual income
- 00,000 - 24,999
- 25,000 - 64,999
- 65,000 - 99,999
- 100,000 - 200,000
- Over 200,000

Part 2: Your Top Issues
Below are a list of issues. Please carefully review this list, then:

5. List your top issue of concern for the 2008 Election cycle

6. List your top five issues of concern in order of importance



Abortion Rights
Civil Rights (general)
Corporate Accountability
Drug Policy
Economy (general)
Education
Environment
Executive Power Limits
Foreign Policy
Government Transparency
Health Care
Immigration
Iraq
Labor Rights
LGBT Equality
NAFTA / Free Trade
National Security
Poverty
Social Welfare Programs
Tax Policy
Racial Equality
Veterans Affairs
Women's Equality

Other (please name the issue)


PS - I will be kicking this, if mods allow, periodically over the next week.
