Supplementary notes

This question was phrased by the source as follows: "Er is een voorstel om te komen tot een basisinkomen: iedereen zou van overheidswege een bepaald – beperkt – inkomen ontvangen, ongeacht andere inkomsten en zonder de verplichting om zich beschikbaar te stellen voor de arbeidsmarkt. Het systeem van belastingen en uitkeringen wordt hier dan op aangepast. Vindt u dit een goed voorstel?" (English: There is a proposal to establish a basic income: everyone would receive a (limited) income from the government, regardless of other income and without the obligation to be available for the job market. The tax system and social security benefits is adapted to this. Do you think this is a good proposal?)

The results have been weighted to represent the entire population.
