This is the first annotated bibliography to cover the research studies on public opinion polls and survey research for the first 45 years of polling and survey research in the United States. Nearly 7,000 entries are provided, making this the most comprehensive work on the subject. The work is organized by subject, and within each subject or subcategory, alphabetically by author. Use of this work is augmented by appendixes on acronmyms, source journals, print and CD-ROM sources, organizations associated with the field, and author and selective keyword indexes. Historians and others concerned with the development of polls and surveys will be the main users of this work. Others who will find the volume invaluable include sociologists of science. Collections on communications, modern American society, and politics will find the work of use as well.
