Variable V45: Scalometer: PDS

Literal Question

Q.9

Now let's take a look at the parties in more detail. Imagine a thermometer with a scale from plus 5 to minus 5 and a zero in between. Would you please show me on this thermometer what you think of the different parties?
+5 means that you think a great deal of the party and -5 that you do not think much of the party at all; using the values in between you can express your opinion more precisely.

Q.9(f)) What do you think of the PDS?

2 -4
3 -3
4 -2
5 -1

7 +1
