  • Abstract

    This special-topic poll is part of a continuing series of monthly surveys that solicit public opinion on the presidency and on a range of other political and social issues. Respondents were asked about their overall health and any illnesses they had ever had. They were also asked their views on health-related topics, especially venereal disease and herpes. Respondents were asked about sexually-transmitted diseases and about their own experiences with these diseases (if any). Demographic information about the respondent includes age, sex, race, marital status, employment status, income, educational background, and type of residence.
