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.

Everyone should have access to the Internet.

Schools should concentrate on training people for the workforce.

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

Some overseas aid projects should be funded by the taxpayer, and can't be left to charities.

Some technologies should never be used, whatever their benefits.

Large corporations are more important to the economy than small businesses.

Our armed forces should intervene to stop genocide in other countries.

Overall, young people don't benefit from compulsory military service.

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

The mix of minorities in public institutions should reflect their numbers in the general population.

Breaking the law is not always immoral.

It is acceptable to use any amount of force you choose to defend your property from criminals.

Fundamentally, the people of this country have the same character as those of our neighbours.

The government should raise revenue by taxing consumption rather than income.

In the right circumstances, cutting taxes can increase government revenue.
