State of the First Amendment Survey, 1999

DOI

10.17605/OSF.IO/QKY32

Summary

The State of the First Amendment survey, conducted annually (since 1997, except for 1998) for the First Amendment Center by the Center for Survey Research and Analysis at the University of Connecticut, examines public attitudes toward freedom of speech, press, religion and the rights of assembly and petition. Core questions, asked each year, include awareness of First Amendment freedoms, overall assessments of whether there is too much or too little freedom of speech, press, and religion in the United States, levels of tolerance for various types of public expression. Additional (non-core) questions asked in the 1999 survey include attitudes toward alcohol and tobacco advertisements, levels of tolerance for sexually explicit content in various media, and attitudes toward television and Internet content ratings.

The ARDA has added six additional variables to the original data set to enhance the users' experience on our site.
