  • Abstract

    This data collection is part of a series of nationwide surveys conducted from October 1990 to June 1996 in Spain. The questionnaires for each of these surveys consisted of three sections. The first section collected information on respondents' attitudes regarding personal, national, and international issues, and included questions on respondents' level of life satisfaction and frequency of visits with relatives, neighbors, and friends. The second section contained a topical module of questions that varied from survey to survey, with this survey's topic focusing on demands for social welfare. Among the topics investigated were the socioeconomic status of households, health insurance coverage, sources of assistance received to deal with disease, mental illness, drug and alcohol abuse, and money problems, and knowledge of and attitudes toward public and private institutions that provide welfare assistance. The survey also gauged opinions regarding social inequality and aid to Third World countries. Questions in the third section of the questionnaire elicited socioeconomic information, such as respondent's sex, age, marital status, size of household, occupation, education, religion, religiosity, place of birth, and income.
