AbstractThis study comprises the Human Relations Program Study of Attitudes Toward Work survey. It provides information on the attitudes of employed men and women and housewives toward work, including the meaning and value of work in the workplace, at home, and in voluntary activities outside the home. The survey is one of two surveys carried out at the same time in the fall of 1953 (see also SURVEY OF CONSUMER ATTITUDES AND BEHAVIOR, FALL 1953: PURCHASE DECISIONS [ICPSR 3634]). Many questions were common to both and some questions were exclusive to each. In this survey, data are provided on how respondents valued work and hard work, the level of their satisfaction with their work, their expectations of promotion at work, job and pay satisfaction, and motivations for working, including housework for women. Data are also provided on respondents' evaluations of self-defined non-work activities, alternative roles, marriage and family, and male spouse's job. Demographic variables provide information on age, sex, race, marital status, education, family income, and religion.
