Political Survey

In this survey, you are asked to give your opinion of a set of statements characterising political views. Please rate each statement on the scale given, which runs from "strongly disagree" to "strongly agree".


For statistical purposes, please tell us where you live:

The following are a set of propositions. Tell us whether you agree with them, as they would apply to the country where you live.

Religious faith should be based on the literal word of God.

Children should always obey their parents.

The government should subsidise farmers so that they stay in business, even if it would be cheaper to buy food from abroad.

Our society needs more lawyers.

Officials like public prosecutors should be chosen by the government, not directly elected.

Shared religious belief isn't an important part of our society.

Cutting taxes can't ever increase government revenue.

It is not necessary to ban narcotics to protect society from drug abuse.

We don't need religious faith to have a sense of right and wrong.

We should maintain the right to free expression, even if some people use it to create trouble.

Everybody has a right to top-quality health care, even if they aren't wealthy.

Our nation's history is not particularly glorious.

There is no reason to stand up for the National Anthem.

Our armed forces shouldn't intervene in other countries, even to stop genocide.

Workers in the public sector should be paid as much as those doing similar jobs in private industry.
