This data collection consists of a cumulative file of the Politbarometer West surveys for 1992, which queried citizens of the former West Germany. In these surveys, certain topical questions were asked each month and others were asked irregularly or only once. Data cover the most important problems in Germany, level of satisfaction with democracy, party preference, vote choice in the last federal election, level of sympathy for coalition and opposition parties and politicians, attitudes toward foreigners living in Germany, the competence of the administration and the opposition in solving economic problems in East Germany, the most important federal politician, and the most important chancellor in the history of the Federal Republic of Germany. Those surveyed also were asked about the economy, the need for a foreign work force, the stability of the Deutsche mark, expected tax increases, the asylum policy, becoming part of the European Union, preserving the status of German as an official language, and the potential danger to Germany from the dissolution of the Soviet Union. Additional questions covered housing, crime, health care reform, the need for a professional army, military intervention in the former Yugoslavia, level of sympathy toward France, Great Britain, Israel, Greece, Poland, Russia, Spain, and the United States, preference for Bill Clinton or George Bush as president of the United States, and trips to East Germany since the unification.
