This data collection is part of a continuing series of semi-monthly surveys of individuals in Spain. Each survey consists of three sections. The first section collects information on respondents' attitudes regarding personal and national issues. This section includes questions on level of life satisfaction and frequency of relationships, as well as a rating of the importance of national issues. The second section varies according to the monthly topic, with this month's topic focusing on mass media. This section includes an inventory of the respondent's media-related household appliances, such as television sets, stereo equipment, and video cassette recorders. Among the issues investigated are the frequency and amount of time spent watching television, listening to radio, reading newspapers, magazines, and books, and attending concert and theater events. Information is also provided on respondents' preferences in programming or content and whether different media are experienced alone, in the company of others, or in conjunction with some other activity. In addition, the respondents' attitudes toward mass media in general and the perceived consequences on daily life are measured. The third section collects demographic data such as sex, age, religion, income, and place of residence.
