This data collection is part of a continuing series of monthly surveys that evaluate the Bush presidency and solicit opinions on a variety of political and social issues. Topics covered include the economy, the environment, foreign affairs, the illegal drug problem, and whether the Bush administration was doing all it could to deal with major problems facing the nation. In addition, respondents were questioned in depth about race relations. They were asked about the proportion of Blacks and whites living in their neighborhoods, whether common sense or prejudice led whites to avoid driving through largely Black neighborhoods, why Blacks generally have worse jobs, income, and housing than whites, and if the quality of life for Blacks in the United States was better, worse, or about the same compared to ten years ago. Respondents also were questioned regarding homelessness, abortion, and the new Medicare program covering catastrophic illness and long-term hospital stays. Background information on respondents includes political alignment, 1988 presidential vote choice, education, age, religion, social class, marital status, household composition, labor union membership, employment status, race, sex, income, and state/region of residence.
