Summary
This poll, conducted August 23-29, 2006, is part of a continuing series of monthly surveys that solicit public opinion on the presidency and on a range of other political and social issues. Residents of New York City were asked for their opinions of the city, and whether they approved of the way Michael Bloomberg was handling his job as mayor. Views were sought on whether the federal government was doing enough to protect New York City and the country from future terrorist attacks, whether the city was prepared for another terrorist attack, the likelihood of another attack in the next few months, and whether the recent arrests of individuals planning attacks on airplanes flying from England to the United States represented a major terrorist threat to the United States. Respondents were asked how often they thought about the events of September 11, 2001, whether they were still dealing with changes caused by the attacks on the World Trade Center, and whether they knew anyone who was injured or killed in the attacks. Several questions asked whether the public was told the truth about the air quality in downtown Manhattan in the months after the terrorist attacks, whether respondents trusted the federal government to tell the truth about possible dangers if another terrorist attack occurred, and whether the government should be financially responsible for the medical bills of people who experienced health problems because of the terrorist attacks. Additional questions addressed the redevelopment of the World Trade Center site and the proposed Freedom Tower, the United States' war on terrorism, the likelihood that Arab Americans, Muslims, and immigrants from the Middle East were being singled out unfairly in the United States, and how patriotic respondents considered themselves to be. Information was also collected on which borough respondents lived in, how long they had lived in New York City, and whether they were living there at the time of the attacks. Demographic information includes sex, age, race, ethnicity, education level, household income, marital status, religious preference, political party affiliation, and political philosophy
