Cumulated ISSP Data on the ‘Role of Government I-V’ out now!

Categories: ISSP

The International Social Survey Programme (ISSP) has conducted a series of surveys which shed light on respondents’ attitudes and opinions on a wide range of issues covered by the umbrella term ‘Role of Government’. The data offer great opportunities for monitoring social change and deepening the understanding of contemporary societies by looking at subtopics, such as state intervention in the market/economy, government responsibilities, political trust, and efficacy, as well as public spending and taxation. The new cumulated dataset covers 31 countries from across the world and allows combined cross-national and trend analyses over three decades.
