Dataset: Politbarometer Ost 2002 (Kumulierter Datensatz)

Variable V259: Left-right self placement

Literal Question

Q.127

There are various terms which are frequently used when talking about politics, such as 'left' and 'right'. We would like to know whether you would place yourself more to the left or more to right. Please imagine a thermometer again, but this time only with a scale from 0 to 10. 0 means far left, 10 means moderately left. Using the values in between, you can express your opinion more precisely. Where would you place yourself?
