Abstract: These data are from the 1986/87 round of Australia's leading academic survey, the International Social Science Survey/Australia (IsssA); it includes modules from the National Social Science Survey, the International Social Survey Programme, and various academic research projects. There are 1,528 respondents. It is a mail survey of a simple random sample of citizens aged 18 and over. The sample was drawn from the (compulsory) electoral rolls. These data report citizens' opinions on the functions of their national governments and on what governments should and should not be doing. Questions were asked concerning taxes, cuts in government spending, government creation of new jobs, government spending on environmental concerns, law enforcement, health issues, education, defense, unemployment benefits, and the cultural arts.
