Description

Self-reported Political Orientation (P), Religion (R), and Opinion of Teenage Birth-control (B) of a sample of 911 US citizens in 1993. The data stem from the General Social Survey. The data are tabulated in Bergsma, Croon, and Hagenaars (2009, Table 2.1, Table 2.3). See Section~2.1 in Bergsma, Croon, and Hagenaars (2009). Several worked examples involving this data set are listed below but more can be found at http://stats.lse.ac.uk/bergsma/cmm/R files/GSS93.R
