Abstract: This series provides all 8,587 respondents' answers to 44 questions dealing with blowing the whistle on fraud, waste and mismanagement in the Federal government--who does it and what happens. Each record in the file contains a single individual's responses to the questions. Each record contains salary level, education and employer of the respondent; opinions about practices of reporting illegal or wasteful activities; any personal awareness of instances of fraud, waste, or mismanagement in Government operations, and what the respondent did with that knowledge; and whether the respondent experiences some type of reprisal as a result of reporting the illegal or wasteful activities.
