Summary
This special topic poll sought the views of New York City residents on rent control and rent stabilization regulations in New York City. Those queried were asked for their opinions on government regulation of the prices that businesses can charge for goods and services and to comment on rent control systems in New York City, including whether these laws should be changed, whether rent controls should be abandoned when a tenant's income rises above a certain level, whether the controls should be abandoned when a tenant moves out of the apartment, and whether renters in the city were paying too much or too little in rent. Those queried were asked what they believed would happen if the rent controls were abolished, including a possible rise in rental costs, and construction of apartment buildings in the city. A series of additional questions addressed the topic of men's and women's bathing suits. Topics covered whether modern bathing suits were too revealing, whether the respondent intended to wear a bathing suit in public during the summer, how the respondent would describe his/her appearance while wearing a bathing suit, and whether women should be allowed to go topless at public beaches. Background information on respondents includes age, race, ethnicity, sex, education, political party, family income, and whether the respondent owned or rented his/her residence
