Additional variables probe respondents' opinions of small foreign cars as compared to small American cars, air pollution, gasoline prices, government spending, especially welfare payments, tax increases, income tax filing and returns, their spending plans for income tax refunds, taxes owed, and respondents' financial status relative to the previous year. Information is also provided on respondents' car ownership and the make and use of it.
