International Social Survey Programme

Role of Government

The ISSP Role of Government module series comprises four surveys conducted in 1985, 1990, 1996 and 2006. Successive surveys are always partial replications of earlier surveys.

ISSP Role of Government modules mainly deal with issues, such as attitudes towards government responsibilities and government spending, state intervention in the economy, civil liberties, political interest, trust and efficacy.

Please, note that ISSP Role of Government data is also available as a cumulated data file, allowing for cross-national analyses over time.
