AbstractFor this survey, respondents from three counties in the Detroit, Michigan, area were queried about their social attitudes, racial attitudes, religion, community participation, and personal interactions. With respect to social attitudes, respondents' views were elicited on education, taxes, community service, participating in surveys, and privacy issues. Other questions closely examined respondents' attitudes toward African Americans in the Detroit area. Those queried were also asked to name community organizations they belonged to, and to list where in the Detroit area they went for shopping, medical care, entertainment, and recreation. Additional questions asked for detailed educational background information, religious attitudes, and place of worship. Background information includes marital status, employment, political orientation, and income. More information about the Detroit Area Studies Project is available on this Web site.
