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.

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

Some medical research would require so many animal experiments that it should not be done, whatever the benefits.

Everyone should stand up for the National Anthem.

Having individual local representatives is more important than electing parties in exact proportion to their support.

The wealthy shouldn't pay a larger proportion of their income in tax than the poor.

Sometimes children shouldn't obey their parents.

Sometimes it's necessary to sack people who go on strike.

Overall, economic migrants bring benefits to our country.

Breaking the law is not always immoral.

Schools should not teach children anything which contradicts their parents' religious faith.

Officials like public prosecutors should be directly elected rather than chosen by the government.

Legal protection for free expression creates more trouble than it's worth.

A common language is not necessary for a cohesive society.

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

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