Political Polarization and Typology Survey, 2014
SummaryThe 2014 Pew Political Typology Survey, fielded for the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press by Abt SRBI, completed telephone interviews with a representative sample of 10,013 adults living in the United States (5,010 respondents were interviewed on a landline telephone and 5,003 were interviewed on a cell phone). Data collection was divided equally into three phases (A, B, and C) with non-overlapping field dates. Each third of the interviews was essentially treated as a separate study with separate samples, field dates, weighting and questionnaires, although some questions were asked throughout all three phases.

Weight Variable: LLWEIGHT CELLWGHT WEIGHT
Weights were computed at the completion of each phase of data collection. The final survey dataset contains three weight variables, including the original full sample weight (WEIGHT), a weight for respondents from the landline sample (LLWEIGHT), and a weight for respondents from the cell sample (CELLWGHT). At the Pew's request, weights are computed for respondents who completed the entire interview (n=10,003) as well as those who completed most (but not all) of the interview and reported their ZIP Code (n=10). Two-stage weighting was used to correct for different probabilities of selection associated with the number of adults in the household and the respondent's telephone usage, and balanced to match national population parameters for sex, age, education, race, Hispanic origin, region (U.S. Census definitions), population density and telephone usage.
