A’s Plan to Move to San Jose: Correspondence Analysis of Familiarity and Approve/Disapprove


Just like with the 49er’s, famliiarity for the A’s plans breeds approval. However, since the plan has been out in public for a shorter period of time, the connection is as strong.

Questions used in the Analysis:
How familiar are you with moving the A’s baseball team to San Jose? Is that very familiar, somewhat familiar, somewhat unfamiliar or very unfamiliar?
Do you approve or disapprove of moving the A’s baseball team to San Jose? IF APPROVE/DISAPPROVE: Is that strongly or somewhat? IF DON’T KNOW: Which way do you lean?

The survey consisted of 400 telephone interviews of 2010 likely Santa Clara County Primary voters conducted June 16-18, 2009. Quotas and/or weights were established by gender, age, party, region, and vote history as part of the turnout model.
Correspondence Analysis was used to construct the graphic.
