  • Abstract

    The Politbarometer surveys are intended to assess the attitudes and opinions of eligible German voters on current events and problems, as well as on parties and politicians. This data collection consists of a cumulative file of the monthly East Politbarometer surveys for 2001. In these surveys, certain political questions were asked each month, while other topical questions were asked irregularly or only once. This survey focused on the evaluation of political parties and politicians before and after the election to the Bundestag. Respondents provided opinions of such parties as the Christian Democratic Union (CDU), the Freie Demokratische Partei or Liberal Democratic Party (FDP), the Sozialdemokratische Partei Deutschlands or Social Democratic Party (SPD), and the Green Party. Questions also related to the state of democracy in Germany, the economy, agriculture, the euro, and immigration. Respondents also were queried on the subjects of terrorism, and United States actions in Afghanistan. Demographic information on respondents includes sex, age, marital status, household size and composition, education, occupation and employment status, religious preference, and trade union membership.
