The Indian National Election Study, 1967, 1971, 1979, 1985 is a series of face-to-face surveys of adults in India in the periods immediately following the 1967, 1971, 1979, and 1985 national elections. The focus of these surveys was on the perceptions, attitudes, and behavior of the adult public toward party structures and organizations at the national level of government. In order to assess the sources of influence on respondents’ political attitudes and behavior, they were asked about issues they considered to be most important to both the local and state population, and to rank these issues in order of priority.
