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 to the General Social Survey carried out by the National Opinion Research Center (NORC) in the United States. The BSA questionnaire has two parts, one administered by an interviewer and the other completed by the respondent. As in the past, the 1995 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 1995 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) newspape r readership and identification, (2) public spending, welfare benefits, and health care, (3) economic activity, labor market, training, and disabled people, (4) fear of crime, (5) constitutional issues, (6) education, (7) drugs, (8) Northern Ireland, (9) housing, (10) religion and ethnic origin, (11) classification, (12) countryside, the environment, and transportation, (13) taste and decency, (14) economic prospects, (15) taxation and public spending, (16) charitable giving, (17) welfare/Social Security, (18) euthanasia, and (19) pensions. 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 national identity. Additional demographic data included age, education, income, marital status, and religious and political affiliations.
