Citizen Disenchantment in Mexico is a national survey (N=650) carried out in June, 2006, and funded by National Science Foundation Dissertation Improvement Grant Award #0519262 (PI's David Crow and Robert Luskin). The survey's 96 questions gauge citizen definitions of democracy (including a 12-item battery on electoral, liberal, and substantive conceptualizations of democracy) and evaluations of Mexican democracy. It also includes a 15-item battery on migration experiences. The survey is organized into eight sections: (1) Political Participation and Preferences; (2) Political Interest; (3) Migration and Remittances; (4) General Concepts about Democracy; (5) Evaluation of Democracy in Mexico; (6) Support for Democracy; (7) Political Knowledge; and (8) Sociodemographic Data.

The target population consisted of Mexican citizens 18 years of age or older. The survey consists of 96 questions organized into eight sections: (1) Political Participation and Preferences; (2) Political Interest; (3) Migration and Remittances; (4) General Concepts about Democracy; (5) Evaluation of Democracy in Mexico; (6) Support for Democracy; (7) Political Knowledge; and (8) Sociodemographic Data.

Data is self-weighted; no post-stratification was carried out. ICPSR data undergo a confidentiality review and are altered when necessary to limit the risk of disclosure. ICPSR also routinely creates ready-to-go data files along with setups in the major statistical software formats as well as standard codebooks to accompany the data. In addition to these procedures, ICPSR performed the following processing steps for this data collection: Created online analysis version with question text.. Response Rates: 72 percent Mexican citizens living in Mexico, 18 years or older. Smallest Geographic Unit: precinct Interviewees were selected according to a clustered, multi-stage sampling scheme with random selection at each stage. First, 65 polling places (secciones electorales) -- the primary sampling unit (PSU) -- were selected by simple random sampling, listed in the spreadsheet "MUESTRA FINAL DESENCANTO CIUDADANO.xls". Then, 10 households corresponding to each polling place were selected with a random start and sampling interval of 5 houses; that is, interviewers were instructed to locate polling sites, start at a street corner or landmark nearest the polling site, walk clockwise around the block (or rural demarcation) until arriving at the first house, then skip 5 houses after that, repeating the process until achieving 10 interviews (field substitutions were allowed). In the third, final stage, individuals were selected at random using the next birthday method. Funding insitution(s): National Science Foundation (0519262). face-to-face interviewQuantitative Data
