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.

Shared religious beliefs should be an important part of our society.

Drivers should pay enough tax to cover the cost of environmental damage caused by motor transport, even if that would price some people off the roads.

It is only acceptable to use proportionate force to defend your property from criminals.

National law should always override international agreements.

We should make use of any technology, if it benefits us.

Marijuana is a more dangerous drug than alcohol.

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

New roads and railways should be built by the government, not private companies.

Children should always obey their parents.

No woman should be allowed to have an abortion, whatever the circumstances.

A person's social status should depend on who their parents are.

Economic globalisation will increase inequality.

People who refuse to work should run the risk of going hungry.

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

Smokers should be able to receive medical care for smoking-related illnesses even if they still smoke.
