Abstract
This special topic poll, conducted June 19-23, 1994, was undertaken to assess respondents' views on O.J. Simpson and domestic violence. Respondents were asked whether they had heard about the case involving O.J. Simpson, whether they previously admired O.J. Simpson, whether they had lost their admiration for him, and if they still admired him for his previous accomplishments. Views were sought on how serious the problem of domestic violence was in the United States, whether police, prosecutors, judges, and laws were too tough or not tough enough in combating spouse abuse, and whether respondents would support or oppose a proposed law requiring police to arrest anyone seriously suspected of spouse abuse, even if the victim did not want to press charges. Respondents were also polled on whether they or a close friend or relative had ever been physically abused by their partner, how often it occurred, whether it was still continuing, whether it was reported to the police, whether the respondent was injured, and whether the abuser was arrested. Other topics addressed respondents' interest in professional football. Background variables include sex, age, and ethnicity.Cf: http://doi.org/10.3886/ICPSR03848.v1
