Description
  • Abstract

    This study was conducted by the Survey Research Center of the Institute for Social Research under the direction of Carlos H. Arce for the purpose of identifying people of Mexican descent for the larger and more comprehensive Chicano Survey. A questionnaire was administered to 10,574 respondents from January to October of 1979 in the five Southwestern states: California, Texas, Arizona, New Mexico, and Colorado, and the standard metropolitan statistical areas (SMSAs) of Chicago, Illinois, and Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Information about ancestral origins, and observations about the respondents, their homes, and their neighborhoods are all included. The survey identified 1,377 households with persons of Mexican descent who were then eligible for interviewing for the Chicano Survey. This collection was made available to ICPSR by the National Chicano Research Network, which was located at the Survey Research Center of the Institute of Social Research, University of Michigan.
