This study investigates the dynamics of attitudes formation on issues relating to job hiring and workplace evaluations, public social provision, social justice, and counterterrorism in the contemporary United States. The Survey of American Policy Attitudes (SAPA) couples an experimental design with a nationally-representative social survey to understand mechanisms behind the formation of a variety of policy and labor market-related attitudes and beliefs. Information on personality attributes and a range of socio-demographic characteristics was also collected.
