Abstract

This paper provides background information and basic descriptive statistics for a representative survey of the German population conducted on our behalf by GfK in the first quarter of 2018. The survey covers various topics, including: 1) attitudes towards asylum seekers; 2) migrating workers in the workplace; 3) inflation and monetary policy; and 4) the role played by local budgets in local voting decisions. We also collect a broad range of socio-demographic and psychological indicators.

Keywords: Survey Evidence, Attitudes, Asylum Seekers, Migrating Workers, Inflation, Monetary Policy, Local Budgets, Germany
