More Data: Political Socialization!

CIRCLE, The Center for Information and Research on Civic Learning and Engagement, has just released a number of data sets that are relatively unique relative to our standard ANES, PEW, and GSS data that we normally use for secondary analysis in political communication and public opinion. If you're interested in youth, this is something you should check out.

Roper Center Data

The School of Communication has recently teamed up with various other departments on campus to purchase access to the Roper Center's public opinion data archive (iPoll). This is a rich source of data and will be very useful to COPS members. The username and password can be obtained from Robb Hagen or Joe Szymczak.
