Summary

In this June 2001 ABC News/Beliefnet Poll, a random national sample of 1,022 Americans was asked to identify their religious affiliation in an open-ended question. Respondents were then asked to give their views on questions about stem-cell research, political affiliation, and abortion. Demographic variables include: gender, age, race, education, and income.

The ARDA has added six additional variables to the original data set to enhance the users' experience on our site.

Collection Procedures

This survey was conducted by TNS Intersearch of Horsham, Pa., for ABC News. Telephone interviews were done with a random national sample of 1,022 adults.

Sampling Procedures

Data were collected for this survey using Computer Aided Telephone Interviewing (CATI). Interviews were conducted during both weekdays and weekends. All respondents were 18 years or older. The respondent selected was the male or female in the household with the most recent birthday. Random Digit Dialing was used and replicated by census region. If initial contact was not made with potential contacts, two additional attempts at contact were made over the next 23 hours. For more information about sampling procedures, see the TNS Intersearch of Horsham, PA Web site.

Notes

According to the methodology page of the ABC News Web site
https://abcnews.go.com/US/PollVault/story?id=145373&page=1, Final data are weighted using demographic information from the Census to adjust for sampling and nonsampling deviations from population values. Respondents customarily are classified into one of 48 cells based on age, race, sex and education. Weights are assigned so the proportion in each of these 48 cells matches the actual population proportion according to the Census Bureau's most recent Current Population Survey.
