Method and meaning in polls and surveys by Howard Schuman( Book )

14 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in English and Polish and held by 770 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
Black racial attitudes : trends and complexities by Howard Schuman( Book )

8 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 711 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The slogan "study the victimizers, not the victims," can too easily become an excuse for substituting the ideologies and preconceptions of white and black intellectuals for the often different reality revealed by empirical research. This monograph tries to present a modest but complex set of data gathered using attitude sample survey methods, and to do so within a relatively objective framework of analysis and reporting. The main final comparison samples were representative of Detroit black heads and wives of heads of house, ages 21-69 inclusive, at each of three points in time. The first set of data is drawn from interviews with 2,809 black respondents, ages 16-69, in Detroit and 14 other American cities. These interviews were carried out between January 6 and March 31 of 1968. a second independent survey of black attitudes was carried out in Detroit by the Detroit Area Study April 24-July 31 of 1968. It included six questions from the first study. Because the assassination of Martin Luther King occurred during the three weeks between the completion of the first study and the beginning of the second, a comparison of responses to the six repeated questions permits assessment of the immediate effect of the assassination on attitudes of the Detroit black adult population. The third survey, also a Detroit area study, was carried out in 1971, April 15-September 26. (Author/JM)

Racial attitudes in fifteen American cities by Angus Campbell( Book )

31 editions published between 1968 and 1973 in English and Undetermined and held by 236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Concerned exclusively with what might be termed as "the human meaning of the current confrontation of the races in American cities," this preliminary report supplements and extends the findings of the National Advisory Commission on Civil Disorders by dealing specifically with the attitudes, perceptions, experiences, and expectations of blacks and whites living in 15 major nothern cities, and of whites in two suburbs of those cities. Probability sampling yielded 300 to 400 black and white subjects, aged 16-69 years, from each city, and 363 white subjects from the two suburbs. Nearly 500 interviewers (black for black subjects and white for white subjects) administered pretested 100+ item questionnaires, about half of the items being common for both races. Reported results are based on combined responses of black urban, white urban, and white suburban subjects. (Analysis of differences between cities will appear in the final report --see below.) Areas studied were: 1) black views of racial issues; 2) white beliefs about blacks; 3) a comparison of black and white attitudes and experiences in the city; 4) the uses of violence. A summary of the report precedes the detailed tables and anlyses of responses. An extension of the findings in this preliminary report will be published in 1970 by Columbia University Press. (Djb)
