Abstract

This paper provides a non-technical overview of the results of a population sample of German citizens in 2011. It provides utility based assessments of a wide range of social, economic and political issues both local and global utilizing a best-worst, maximum difference, approach to determining salience. This is a unique and potentially revealing alternative to standard Likert based polling. In addition, the report outlines data on religious activity, political orientation and affiliation, donating and volunteering behavior and personality measures.

Note: This report is also available in German.

Keywords: social values, political values, polling, utility based assessment
