Anticipated Social Effects and Reactions to the Issue of Imposition of Service Duties in Kuwait Society (in Arabic)

Auther : Khalid A. Al - Shallal

The imposition of duties on services is currently one of the main concerns on both the formal and the popular levels in Kuwait. This concern has increased during 1997, especially when the government raised that issue with gravity Regardless of the tendency of that breach, popular reactions come as the principal factor to be taken into consideration.

This study dealt with this issue directly aiming to define the anticipated social effects and reactions to the issue of the imposition of duties on services. The study was conducted on a random sample of 208 individuals of Kuwait citizens of the age 25 years and above. The study relied on a test (measure) prepared and standardized in accordance with the scientific rules (fundamentals) recognized in this connection. The data statistics were treated according to a plan linked to the good of this study.

The study has arrived at several conclusions (results), and these are: three quarters of the participants, either do not anticipate the imposition of duties, or are not positive of its imposition. Health services and electricity come on top of services anticipated by participants to see such duties. 87.5% of the participants see the possibility of imposing duties on services on non-Kuwaitis. 67.3% of the participants see the important of expecting the low-income categories of such duties. Despite the overall responses of participants expressing the positive effects of imposing duties, they reflect a weak response to accept it. However, such a response, meets to a certain degree with what the government sees as positive. Contrary to that, we find those overall responses of participants expressing the negative effects of imposing duties, they reflect a strong tendency to reject it. The difference between the mean of positive responses and the mean of the (negative) responses leads statistically in favour of the rejection of imposing duties.
