American Values: 1998 National Survey of Americans on Values

This set of surveys from the Washington Post/Kaiser/Harvard Survey Project examines social and moral values and their role in Americans’ outlook on politics and policy. A portion of the findings from these surveys appeared in the Washington Post on September 11, 1998, commencing a series of occasional articles to be released over a period of eight weeks. The goal of the surveys – and their presentation in a series of reflections on values in the public domain – is to shed light on the influence of values on discourse about social and health policy, party politics, and broader questions about the future of our nation.
