Survey data for trend analysis : an index to repeated questions in U.S. National surveys held by the Roper Public Opinion Research Center by Roper Public Opinion Research Center( Book )

7 editions published between 1974 and 1975 in English and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume consists of an index of questions repeated in public opinion surveys, and the variants of these questions. The questions included are drawn from American national samples (primarily of the general population) conducted by aipo (Gallup) norc, and Roper, and archived at the Roper Public Opinion Research Center. The basic data for over 90 percent of the surveys cited are available only from the Roper Center. The earliest survey included in this index was undertaken in September, 1936, and the most recent survey in October, 1973. The purpose of the index is to make accessible a data base for the measurement and analysis of social change. Seventy major topics comprised of specific research questions range from agricultural farm income trends to Americans' attitudes toward Yugoslavia. Each entry consists of the question wording, the survey organization which asked the question, the number and date of the survey, and the number of the question. As an aid to researchers undertaking secondary analysis of survey data, Norval D. Glenn has written a guide to survey archive research. Also included are a list of publications on the study of social change using survey data from the Roper Center; a summary of the procedures used in compiling the index; and information on code categories for demographic background question and changes in survey sampling procedures.

Use of radiophonic teaching in fundamental education by Roper Public Opinion Research Center( Book )

2 editions published in 1963 in English and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A pilot study was conducted in el salvador and honduras to test the feasibility of multinational evaluation of the radiophonic school system in latin america. Radio school programs were examined in terms of their effect on participant achievement, satisfaction, and application of acquired skills and knowledge. Attitudinal, social, and cultural factors associated with the subject students and their school group leaders, monitors, and administrators, as well as any specified limits within which these schools must operate were investigated. Interview data were gathered from a selected sample of adult students (present and dropout, 15 years of age or over), and representatives and monitors of the schools. The findings of the subject survey were covered under four major topics--(1) student achievement relative to literacy, general attitudinal and behavior patterns, and other individual student characteristics, and the effect of school and classroom environment on these characteristics, (2) student achievement in areas outside of school and knowledge applications, (3) student satisfaction with radiophonic education, and (4) guidelines for further research.

General Social Surveys, 1972-1994 : [Cumulative File] by James A Davis( )

2 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The General Social Surveys (GSS) are designed as part of a program of social indicator research, replicating questionnaire items and wording in order to facilitate time-trend studies. This collection is a cumulative dataset that merges 20 years of the General Social Surveys. In 1994, two major innovations were introduced to the GSS. First, the traditional core set of questions was substantially reduced to allow for the creation of mini-modules (small- to medium-sized supplements). The mini-modules permit greater flexibility to incorporate innovations and to include important items proposed by the social science community. Second, a new biennial, split-sample design was instituted. The sample consisted of two parallel subsamples of approximately 1,500 cases each. The two subsamples contained identical cores. The A sample also contained a standard topical module, the mini-modules, and an ISSP (International Social Survey Program) module on women, work, and the family. The B sample had a second topical module, mini-modules, and an ISSP module on the environment. In effect, the A sample can be viewed as representing a traditional GSS for 1994 and the B sample as representing a traditional GSS for 1995. Rather than being fielded separately in two different years, they were fielded together. In subsequent even-numbered years, the same design described for 1994 will be repeated. The topical modules for 1994 focused on the themes of family mobility and multiculturalism ... Cf.: http://dx.doi.org/10.3886/ICPSR06492

General Social Surveys, 1972-2004 [Cumulative File] by James A Davis( Book )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The General Social Surveys (GSS) were designed as part of a data diffusion project in 1972. The GSS replicated questionnaire items and wording in order to facilitate time-trend studies. This data collection includes a cumulative file that merges all data collected as part of the General Social Surveys from 1972 to 2004. The 2004 survey was composed of permanent questions that appeared on each previous survey, rotating questions that appeared on two out of every three surveys (e.g. 1973, 1974, 1976), and a small number of occasional questions that occurred in a single survey. The GSS included 12 topical modules: computer and Internet use, negative life events, religious transformations, daily religious experiences, an experiment on measuring immigration status, altruism, an experiment on measuring alcohol consumption, attitudes towards guns, social networks and group memberships, sexual behavior and genetic testing and the role of heredity, stress and violence in the workplace. The International Social Survey Program (ISSP) modules included in the 2004 survey were: national identity and globalization, and citizenship. The national identity and globalization module was based upon the 1995 ISSP national identity module. The citizenship module was new for the 2004 data. It included questions regarding civic and political participation, social welfare policies, efficacy, misanthropy, international organizations, political parties, political corruption, and the working of democracy. Additional questions sought the respondent's opinion on topics such as the environment, foreign relations, society, the economy, leisure activities, familial relations, health care, and personal philosophy. The GSS also contained demographic information describing the respondents ... Cf.: http://dx.doi.org/10.3886/ICPSR04295

General Social Survey Cumulative File, 1972-1986 by James A Davis( )

1 edition published in 1987 in Undetermined and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The General Social Survey has been conducted by the National Opinion Research Center annually since 1972 except for the years 1979 and 1981. The Roper Center for Public Opinion Research has prepared a cumulative dataset which merges thirteen years of the General Social Survey into a single file, with each year constituting a subfile. The content of each year's survey changes slightly as some items are added to or deleted from the interview schedule. The most notable addition to the 1986 wave of the survey was a group of questions related to the feminization of poverty. Respondents were asked if they had ever received income from various governmental assistence programs or from alimony or child support payments. Attitudes toward welfare were also probed through agreement or disagreement with a series of statements concerning the welfare system
