Welfare Attitudes (ESS4 2008, ESS8 2016)

The ESS4 (2008) module on welfare concerns the attitudes towards, and perceptions and evaluations of welfare policies in the broad sense. More specifically, it focuses on attitudes towards welfare provision, size of claimant groups, views on taxation, attitudes towards service delivery and likely future dependence on welfare. The aim of the module is to provide essential input into the interdisciplinary field of comparative studies of welfare state attitudes, to address important everyday-life concerns by citizens, and to offer critical insights of the public legitimacy of welfare state reform.
