Results have been analyzed using gender, nationality, martial statues, age; as independent variables.

  2. The percentage of negative attitudes towards same issues (time, work, public property) are 8.3, 8.68, 6.51 respectively .
  3. Individual older than 25 years of age shows a higher percentage of negative attitudes than those below 25 years of age.
