Summary
This survey is part of a continuing series designed to monitor trends in a wide range of social attitudes in Great Britain. The British Social Attitudes Survey (BSA) is similar in purpose to the General Social Survey carried out by the National Opinion Research Center (NORC) in the United States. The BSA questionnaire had two parts, one administered by an interviewer and the other completed by the respondent. As in the past, the 1991 interview questionnaire contained a number of "core" questions covering the major topic areas of defense, the economy, labor market participation, and the welfare state. The 1991 self-enumerated questionnaire was devoted to a series of questions on a range of social, economic, political, and moral issues. Topics covered (by section) are (1) charitable giving, (2) divorce, (3) child support, (4) economic activity, (5) economic issues and policies, (6) environment, (7) government spending, (8) health and lifestyle, (9) health care, (10) household income, (11) housing, (12) trust in institutions, (13) judgments of right and wrong, (14) labor market participation, (15) labor market and gender issues, (16) labor market and the work ethic, (17) labor market and training, (18) newspaper readership, (19) British presence in Northern Ireland, (20) community relations in Northern Ireland, (21) party politics, (22) pensions, (23) political participation and efficacy, (24) poverty, (25) race, (26) racial discrimination, (27) religious denomination and attendance, (28) religious beliefs, (29) sex and gender issues, (30) domestic division of labor, (31) social class, (32) social inequality, (33) taxation, (34) trust in institutions, and (35) the welfare state. An international initiative funded by the Nuffield Foundation, the International Social Survey Program (ISSP), also contributes a module to the BSA. The topic of the ISSP module in this collection was religion. Additional demographic data gathered included age, gender, education, occupation, household income, marital status, social class, and religious and political affiliations
