Method and meaning in polls and surveys by Howard Schuman ( Book )
12 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and held by 759 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Howard Schuman is one of the premier scholars of social surveys. His expertise concerns the way questions about attitudes and beliefs are worded and the effects questions have on the answers people give. However, Method and Meaning in Polls and Surveys is less about the substance of wording effects and more about approaches to interpreting the respondent's world, and how surveys can make that world understandable - though often in ways not anticipated by the researcher." "The book will be of interest to social scientists, to survey researchers in academia and polling, and to all those concerned with the profound influence of surveys in society."--Jacket

Racial attitudes in fifteen American cities, 1968 by Angus Campbell ( )
10 editions published between 1968 and 1997 in 3 languages and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This study explores attitudes and perceptions related to urban problems and race relations in 15 northern cities of the United States (Baltimore, Boston, Brooklyn, Chicago, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Detroit, Gary, Milwaukee, Newark, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, St. Louis, San Francisco, and Washington, DC). More specifically, it seeks to define the social and psychological characteristics and aspirations of the Black and white urban populations. Samples of Blacks and whites were selected in each of the cities in early 1968. The study employed two questionnaire forms, one for whites and one for Blacks, and two corresponding data files were generated. Attitudinal questions asked of the white and Black respondents measured their satisfaction with community services, their feelings about the effectiveness of government in solving urban problems, and their experience with police abuse. Additional questions about the respondent's familiarity with and participation in antipoverty programs were included. Other questions centered on the respondent's opinions about the 1967 riots: the main causes, the purpose, the major participating classes, and the effect of the riots on the Black cause. Respondents' interracial relationships, their attitudes toward integration, and their perceptions of the hostility between the races were also investigated. White respondents were asked about their opinions on the use of governmental intervention as a solution for various problems of the Blacks, such as substandard schools, unemployment, and unfair housing practices. Respondent's reactions to nonviolent and violent protests by Blacks, their acceptance of counter-rioting by whites and their ideas concerning possible governmental action to prevent further rioting were elicited. Inquiries were made as to whether or not the respondent had given money to support or hinder the Black cause. Other items in... Cf.: http://webapp.icpsr.umich.edu/cocoon/ICPSR-STUDY/03500.xml
