Data-Driven Learning Guides are a collection of instructional exercises that can be used to enhance teaching of core concepts in the social sciences. This learning guide investigates attitude consistency and the ideological dimensions of attitudes about euthanasia. Research questions that can be explored using this learning guide include: how self-interest might influence support for euthanasia, how do attitudes about euthanasia vary by age, gender, and race, whether people's attitudes about euthanasia are consistent with their religious views, and what symbolic predispositions have the strongest influence on attitudes about euthanasia. Frequency distributions and crosstabulations are used for the analyses.
This data collection has been deaccessioned; it is no longer distributed by ICPSR. The data are currently available at Euthanasia.
