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.

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

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

Sometimes children shouldn't obey their parents.

Economic globalisation will decrease inequality.

Sometimes interest rates should be raised to reduce inflation, even if doing so would cause a large number of job losses.

Overall, young people benefit from compulsory military service.

Small businesses are more important to the economy than large corporations.

Alcohol is a more dangerous drug than marijuana.

Members of society needn't be familiar with the history and traditions of our culture.

The only way for some workers to achieve fair pay is through collective bargaining.

Society is more important than family.

Everyone bears a moral responsibility for the actions of their government, even when they do not support them.

Drug abuse is a problem primarily because of its effects on society, not its effects on drug users alone.

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.

The people of this country have a very different character to those of our neighbours.
