The stock market was the subject of this poll. Respondents were asked if changes in stock market prices affected them personally, if they currently owned or had ever owned any stock, and if they or anyone in their households were enrolled in a pension plan or received payments from a pension plan or social security. Additional questions focused on insider trading and Ivan Boesky. Demographic characteristics of respondents are included.
