In an approach to studying the social ethics of Spaniards, the EVSSG studies in 1981 and 1990 asked respondents to determine the extent to which a variety of personal actions would be justified.
In the 1990 EVSSG survey, Spanish respondents were asked to choose among a series of items in selecting important "objectives that the country should put into effect in the next ten years.
Data from the EVSSG study show that both belonging to and working voluntarily for associations and organizations fell during the 1980s.
In 1990, 47% of the EVSSG sample responded "not at all" to a question about interest in politics.
Attitude changes toward liberty and competition have been experienced in work settings as well, according to the EVSSG studies.
