We are pleased to provide our data to scholars for their research. We hope this information will be useful in furthering our collective understanding of California and public opinion in California.
The information presented here is a questionnaire (questions and answers) from a recent pre-election survey that was conducted immediately before the 2002 California gubernatorial election. The survey was conducted in collaboration with the Center for Campaign Leadership at the Institute of Governmental Studies at the University of California, Berkeley, with partial funding from the Pew Charitable Trusts. These data were used in the PPIC report, The Season of Our Discontent: Voters’ Views on California Elections.
All manuscripts, articles, books, and other papers and publications using these data should refer to PPIC as the source and to Mark Baldassare as the Survey Director.
