PPIC Statewide Survey: Special Survey on Public Attitudes and Fiscal Realities in Five Stressed States

PPIC is pleased to make our data available to our research colleagues. We hope it will help further our collective understanding of California and public opinion in California.

Below is a link to the Public Policy Institute of California’s survey data along with a codebook, from a survey conducted in June 2010 in five fiscally stressed states (Arizona, California, Florida, Illinois, and New York). The survey was conducted in collaboration with the Pew Center on the States (PCS), and these data were used in a PPIC/PCS report, Facing Facts: Public Attitudes and Fiscal Realities in Five Stressed States.

All manuscripts, articles, books, and other papers and publications using this data should cite Mark Baldassare as Survey Director and credit both the Pew Center on the States and the Public Policy Institute of California as the source of the data. They should also acknowledge that PPIC bears no responsibility for interpretations or conclusions based on analysis of the data.
