Published annually since 1978, the Index to International Public Opinion contains data dealing with subjects of widespread international interest. This latest volume includes data culled from surveys conducted and/or referenced in nearly 200 countries and geographical regions throughout the world. All of the tables published present total sample results, and many include analysis of the data by various significant categories such as age, economic level, sex, educational level, national region, and religion. The poll questions deal with social, political, and economic questions of both contemporary and historical interest to the public as a whole and to professional social scientists. Among the issues covered in volume 10 are the role of religion in society, management/labor relations, armament/disarmament, the status of women and minorities, isolationism, and political radicalism. The volume also includes data on recent current events such as the Iran-Contra affair, various political parties in many countries, media exposure and evaluation, and matters of international concern such as the conflict in the Persian Gulf and the AIDS epidemic.
The integrity and high scientific quality of the surveys included in Index to International Public Opinion render the series an important reference resource for scholars, journalists, business leaders, and those working in government.
