Economic means for human needs : social indicators of well-being and discontent by Burkhard, Ed Strumpel( Book )

4 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 577 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is concerned with the human conflict between needs and means, between material wants and lack of resources to satisfy them. Looking at both individuals and some segments of society, the authors measure economic well-being and define its objective and psychological bases, its dimensions, and its relationship to economic incentives. In the introduction an operational model of the interactions is presented as a conceptual framework. The articles in the book report on results of investigation in areas of research and development that have emerged from the model. Section I includes five papers that examine the sources and measurement of economic well-being. Their titles are (1) Economic Life Styles, Values, and Subjective Welfare; (2) Well-Being, Goals, and Motivation for Economic Advancement; (3) Persistence of Belief in Personal Financial Progress; (4) Effects of Social-Psychological Factors on Subjective Economic Welfare; and (5) Personal Efficacy and the Ideology of Individual Responsibility. Papers in Section ii explore the use of indicators of economic well-being as performance criteria and as components for an early warning system of individual maladjustment and social conflict. Titles of these papers are (6) Economic Well-Being as a Criterion for Performance: a Survey in Bulgaria and Greece; (7) The Quality of Consumption; (8) Economic Deprivation and Societal Discontent; (9) Factors Affecting Social Change; and (10) Responses to Economic Adversity: An Agenda for Research in a Changed Environment.

Black students on white campuses : the impacts of increased black enrollments by Marvin W Peterson( Book )

3 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 547 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The responsiveness of 13 institutions to increased black enrollments is examined in this book. Focus is on the impacts of minority enrollments on the institutions--what kinds of changes took place and who felt the greatest impact because of the changes--and the reasons for success or failure of minority programs among the various schools. The problems of incorporating new porgrams into the existing structure are addressed. In recent years, new programs have been established at the periphery of the academic institutions with short-term outside funds. In the face of declining appropriations to higher education, these problems are crucial to the future of any new educational program. It is suggested that improvements in dealing with the changes brought by increased black enrollments can also be useful in institutional handling of the new wave of older, nontraditional students. The book is divided into the following sections: Evolution of a Complex Social Issue: The Basis for the Study; The Determinants and Dynamics of Change; Institutional Impacts and Responses; The 1975 Perspectives: Integration, Segregation, or Pluralism; and Evolution or Revolution: The Process Reviewed. Appended are the research design abstract, interview guide, survey questionnaire, samples and institutional response rates for the survey populations, evaluation methods (factor analysis); and mean scores on indices for faculty and administrators.

Survey of consumer finances( )

in English and held by 496 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A Survey of Consumer Finances was conducted annually from 1946 through 1971. The major focus of there surveys is toward the collection of statistics on the distribution of consumer income, assets, debt, and major transactions. Interviewing was done in January-March of each year with questions covering ownership of assets and financial balances, source, purpose and amount of debt, including installment debt, and amount, earners, source of current income, and previous year's income. Also explored are attitudes toward the respondent's personal financial situation, toward general economic conditions and prices, and expectations for the coming year. Information was sought about current and planned expenditures for housing, automobiles, and major durables. Samples for the surveys are made up of a national cross-section of dwelling units representing the total population of the United States. In the early years the interviewing unit was the spending unit, but in 1964 it was changed to the family unit
