Harris 1989 environmental survey in four continents
Focuses on the state of the world's environment. Probes the concerns of people living in different parts of the world about their own environment and perceived inter-dependent problems on a more global basis. Supported by financial aid from several governments and organizations, the UNEP ask Harris and Associates to conduct surveys across 4 continents and within 16 countries. In each country (except the US), there were 2 distinct samples; a leader sample and a general public sample -- for a total of 31 files. In the US there was only the public sample. The survey covers the following countries: Africa - (Kenya, Nigeria, Senegal, Zimbabwe); Asia and the Pacific - (China, India, Japan, Saudi Arabia); Latin America and the Caribbean - (Argentina, Brazil, Jamaica, Mexico); Eastern Europe - (Hungary); Western Europe and North America - (Norway, West Germany, and the United States). Among the items measured are awareness and perceptions of environmental issues, levels of concern about environmental issues, perceptions of causes of pollution and environmental degradation, attitudes to global and regional interdependence, and attitudes toward possible policies.
