Tipp poll results
ABOUT THIS SURVEY: The Christian Science Monitor/TIPP poll of Kosovo refugees (for their specific places of origin, see map at left) was conducted May 22-23 at Fort Dix, N.J. Written questions were presented to 459 of the 3,016 ethnic Albanians living in the Refugee Village at the time of the survey. Some were also interviewed. Participation was voluntary. The respondents were 70 percent male, 30 percent female. Forty-four percent were under 30; only 8 percent were over 55. Half of those polled came from Kosovo's capital, Pristina, with a largely white-collar population. Another third were from the town of Ferizaj. Five percent or fewer respondents came from the other towns in Kosovo.
