Summary
This survey focuses on issues associated with Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS). Respondents were asked to specify the greatest health problem facing the nation, to indicate how much they knew about AIDS, to name the ways that someone could catch AIDS, to indicate if they would be willing to work side by side with a fellow worker who had AIDS, and to relate the means they were using to avoid exposing themselves to AIDS. In addition, respondents were asked if they approved of the way Bush was handling the situation involving the disease, how they rated various measures for preventing the spread of AIDS, and if they agreed with a series of statements that included separating people with AIDS from the general public, paying more income taxes if the government used the tax money for AIDS research, and educating the public. Other topics covered include whether medical authorities should locate people with whom AIDS victims had been sexually intimate and tell them they might also have AIDS, mandatory AIDS testing, public education and information about AIDS, the threat of AIDS to respondents and their families, and personal acquaintance with someone who had contracted AIDS. Background information on respondents includes education, age, religion, marital status, sex, race, state/region residence, whether they had been tested for AIDS, and what the tests results showed
