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 1986 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 1989 self-enumerated questionnaire was devoted to a series of questions on a range of social, economic, political, and moral issues. Topics that received attention (by section) include: (1) newspaper readership, defense, international relations, (2) economic issues/policies, household income, economic activity, labor market participation, (3) the welfare state, the National Health Service, (4) race (short), social class, religion, (5) moral issues, race (long), poverty, and state benefits, (6) diet and health (long), politics (long), (7) industry/jobs, Northern Ireland issues, (8) housing, and (9) AIDS, diet, and health (short). Beginning in 1985, an international initiative funded by the Nuffield Foundation, the International Social Survey Program (ISSP), also contributed a module to the BSA. In 1989, the British Social Attitudes Survey questionnaire carried two international modules, as no field work was carried out in 1988. Both the 1988 ISSP module on women and the family and the 1989 ISSP module on work orientations are included. Additional demographic data gathered included age, gender, education, occupation, household income, marital status, social class, and religious and political affiliations....
