Spring 2005 Youth Survey

Working with a group of Harvard undergraduates and the staff of the Institute of Politics, Schneiders/ Della Volpe/ Schulman, a bipartisan, professional polling firm, conducted 1,206 telephone interviews with college undergraduates from March 21 to April 4, 2005.

The objectives of the survey were to track the attitudes of college undergraduates related to politics from earlier IOP studies, to continue studying a new ideology index that accurately reflects undergraduates’ political stances, and to measure opinions of college undergraduates regarding:

  • Interest and Participation in Election 2004
  • Social Security
  • American Foreign Policy
  • America’s Role in the World

The margin of error for this survey is ±2.8 percent at the 95 percent confidence level, but is higher for subgroups.
