Abstract
This special topic poll sought respondents' views on AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome) as the greatest health problem facing the nation. Those queried were asked to describe their level of comfort engaging in casual contact with people with AIDS and working with others with AIDS and to comment on whether they approved of students with AIDS attending school. The return to professional basketball by Los Angeles Laker Magic Johnson after his 1991 retirement was addressed. Respondents were asked if they believed his presence on the court would put his teammates and/or opposing players at risk of HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) infection. Background variables include sex and personal knowledge of others with AIDS.
