Respondents were asked their opinions on the direction in which the United States was heading, the economy, Bill Clinton's economic proposals, taxes, government gridlock, the news media's treatment of President Clinton, and perceptions of the federal government. Other items concerned smoking, physician-assisted suicide, the role of the United States in world affairs in general, and its role in the conflict between the former Yugoslavian republics of Serbia and Bosnia in particular. Background information on respondents includes political party, voter registration status, vote choice in the 1992 presidential election, political orientation, education, religion, social class, marital status, household composition, labor union membership, employment status, Hispanic origin, race, age, household income, and sex.
