Survey Questions

The survey on lobbyist attitudes was conducted in February 2009 by Dr. Craig Holman of Public Citizen and Thomas Susman of the American Bar Association, Washington DC for the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). The survey consists of 16 brief multiple choice questions seeking opinion on lobbying regulation and self-regulation. Identity was not recorded at any point, and answers have been kept strictly confidential.
