  • Abstract

    For this survey respondents were questioned concerning household composition, national affairs and national leaders, men's and women's roles, the Women's Liberation movement, political interest and trust, crime control, moral standards, and other current issues, as well as political participation, explanations for "different life chances" and differing longevity, poverty, and racial differences. Personal information about the respondent includes occupation, industry, education, religion, marital status, union and club membership, political and party identification, and income. An adjective checklist about national government was administered. In addition, all respondents were asked to complete questionnaires dealing with sexual behavior. The dataset also contains census tract information from the 1970 Census such as median family income, years of education, persons per household, percent black and Spanish, percent below poverty level, percent other races, and housing information.
