This special-topic poll is part of a continuing series of monthly surveys that solicit public opinion on the presidency and on a range of other political and social issues. This data collection focused on inflation and attitudes toward President Ronald Reagan's economic proposals. Respondents were asked to pinpoint the possible causes of inflation. They were questioned about the Reagan administration's spending cuts and who they thought would benefit from them. Respondents were also asked to elaborate specifically on the impact of inflation on their spending habits, and if inflation prevented them from buying new cars, homes, or taking vacations. Some additional questions were asked about prize fighting. Demographic information collected on respondents includes age, race, sex, religion, number of children, and occupation.
