Summary:  View help for Summary
The Fall 2013 NSEE included longitudinal questions about belief in climate change, plus additional content related to international emissions reductions (the Kyoto Protocol), cap and trade, carbon taxes, impact of partisanship on support for climate policies, and more. The results are based on a telephone survey of 947 adult (age 18 or older) residents of the United States between October 3 and October 14, 2013. Respondents were interviewed in English on both landlines (626) and cell phones (321) by the staff of the Muhlenberg College Institute of Public Opinion (MCIPO) in Allentown, Pennsylvania on the Institute’s Computer Aided Telephone Interviewing (CATI) system.

Rather than using variables names based on question number, the NSEE datasets use a longitudinal variable naming scheme, to facilitate longitudinal analysis. Many questions have been asked in multiple waves of the NSEE. Consult the NSEE Crosswalk to see which questions have been asked in prior and subsequent waves of the NSEE. Variable names
include two parts, a subject category for the question, and a description of the contents of the question. When a question has been asked with the same text and response options over multiple waves, the same variable name will be used in each dataset. Where there have been slight changes in question wording, the variable name will include a version number (v1, v2, etc., appended to the variable name). In the single wave NSEE datasets, variables are listed in the order that they were asked.

Both the landline and cell phone samples were provided by the Marketing Systems Group (MSG), Horsham, Pennsylvania. Both landline and cell phones were chosen randomly from sampling frames of United States landline and cell numbers provided by MSG. In order to reach a representative sample of adult Americans both landlines and cell phones are called up to 10 times.
