This dataset is designed for teaching multinomial logit. The dataset is a subset of data derived from the 2012 Cooperative Congressional Election Study (CCES), and the example presents an analysis of whether survey respondents would prefer Congress to balance the national government’s budget by cutting defense spending, cutting domestic spending, or raising taxes. The dataset file is accompanied by a Teaching Guide, a Student Guide, and a How-to Guide for Stata. The Student Guide and data curation was done by the Odum Institute; the How-to Guide was coauthored by Abigail-Kate Reid and Nick Allum.
