Perceived weight of of social conflicts
Our Classification
Operationalization
Question: Often it is said that there are conflicts of interests between various groups in the FRG, for instance
between political groups, between man
and women and so on.These conflicts are
not all of exactly the same weight.
I will mention some of these groups:
- employers/employees
- foreign workers and Germans
- political left-wing and right-wing
  parties
- men and women

Please tell me if the conflicts between
these groups to your opinion are :
1. no conflicts at all
2. rather slight conflicts
3. rather heavy conflicts
4. very heavy conflicts
