Description
  • Abstract

    This survey examines the attitudes of New Yorkers towards race relations. Topics covered include the racial composition of the respondent's neighborhood and friends, the most important white and black leaders in New York City, police brutality, discrimination on racial grounds for housing and jobs, crime, and important problems facing New York City such as drugs, transportation, the poor and homeless, corruption, and illegal aliens. Additional questions asked of respondents include if they approved or disapproved of the way Ed Koch has handled his job as mayor, if New York City courts were tougher on blacks or whites, if the level of racial discrimination had increased or decreased, and if a preference in hiring or promotion should be given to blacks. Background information on individuals includes party affiliation, age, income, sex, religious preference, education, and race.
