Summary
This general survey elicited opinions on a variety of topics including the Persian Gulf War, peace in the Middle East, paying more federal tax in order to accomplish certain objectives, and estimates of how many Americans cheat on their income tax. Those surveyed were also asked whether Japanese or American cars were a better value, and whether greater fuel efficiency or safety devices such as air bags would be preferred if the respondent was buying a new car and was able to spend an additional five hundred dollars on one of these features. Questions on economic matters probed for the likelihood of an adult in the respondent's family being out of work and actively looking for a job within the next 12 months, and the length of time the respondent could live on savings if the chief wage earner lost his/her job. Health and family issues focused on whether physician-assisted suicide should be allowed, whether the respondent would consider taking his/her life if stricken with a disease that would eventually destroy both mind and body, whether race should be a factor in adoption, the permanence of adoption, whether someone should consider marrying a person they are not in love with, and whether people get married with the expectation that their marriage will last forever. Additional questions pertained to professional baseball, the specific feature of his/her physical appearance that the respondent would change, and the respondent's perception of how he/she looks in a bathing suit. Background information includes marital status, employment, political party affiliation, education, age, race, and family income
