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.

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

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

Schools should concentrate on training people for the workforce.

Drivers shouldn't have to pay taxes to cover damage to the environment caused by motor transport, since that would price some people off the roads.

Overall, economic migrants are a drain on our country.

There is no place for organised religion in government.

There are some ethnic groups who can never be fully integrated into our society.

Art shouldn't receive government funding.

Our society doesn't need any more lawyers.

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

Some crimes are so serious that the only proper punishment is the death penalty.

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

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

It's more important to decrease the gap between rich and poor than to make the poor richer.

Beneficial medical research should always go ahead, however many animal experiments would be performed
