Abstract: This data collection is part of a continuing series of semi-monthly surveys of individuals in Spain. Each survey consists of three sections. The first section collects information on respondents' attitudes regarding personal and national issues. This section includes questions on level of life satisfaction and frequency of relationships, as well as a rating of the importance of national issues. The second section varies according to the monthly topic, with this survey's topic focusing on attitudes towards science and technology. Among the issues investigated are the respondent's interest in science and technology, perceived effects of technology on workers and firms, social image of scientists compared with that of other professionals, the respondent's opinion on the positive and negative effects of scientific discovery and on animal testing, perception of the origin of new technology, and expectations with respect to scientific and technological developments. The third section collects demographic data such as sex, age, religion, income, and place of residence.
