- To test the hypothesis that tobacco industry campaign contributions are influencing the behavior of members of the California legislature.
- Multivariate simultaneous-equations regression was used to analyze data on campaign contributions from the tobacco industry to members of the California legislature in 1991 and 1992, members'tobacco control policy positions, and members'personal characteristics.
- The following sources were analyzed :
campaign contributions from disclosure statements filed with the California Fair Political Practices Commission ;
constituent attitudes on tobacco control from the California Tobacco Survey ;
legislators'personal characteristics, from a survey of key informants conducted by the California Journal ;
and the tobacco policy score, a survey of key informants working on tobacco issues in the state legislature.
