Are there any questions on financial risk preferences and political affiliation?
The Current Population Survey does not ask any questions about either financial risk preferences or political affiliation. Depending on how you define risk preference, you may be able to draw some inferences on financial risk by observing the distribution of income across various sources, healthcare coverage, or migration status. Regarding political affiliation, the closest comparable variables are found in the voter supplement to the CPS administered biennially in the November basic monthly survey in every congressional election year. The supplement includes several questions on voting behavior including whether the respondent voted, and if they didn’t, the reason they did not vote.
