Social psychology : the study of human interaction by Theodore M Newcomb( Book )

54 editions published between 1962 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 864 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Of the writing of texts in social psychology there is no end. The author or each of them believes that he has a special justification for offering his own particular version of the common theme, and I am no exception to this general rule. Perhaps I can formulate the raison d'etre of this volume by outlining a little of its history and by expressing my indebtedness to a few of the individuals from whom its main ideas have been borrowed. These and other converging influences have led me to frame nearly every kind of social-psychological problem in terms of psychological processes which take their particular form from the interactional context in which they occur. And I have come to see group memberships as providing the sine qua non for specifying the interactional context of human social behavior. Groups provide their members with shared frames of reference--particularly in the form of positions and roles, in terms of which they perceive themselves as well as one another. So little social behavior is immune to such shared influences, and so much of it is very largely determined by them, that I have come to accord them a central place in my own thinking. I hope that, in so doing, I have not fallen into the fallacy of assuming that social behavior springs merely from the interiorizing of social norms. This would be quite as disastrous as to ignore social norms altogether. At any rate, this point of view has led me to view social behavior as occurring on the part of biological organisms which are also group members. To understand it we must study both individual life and group life, in terms of a single body of coherent concepts and principles. I have therefore tried to sketch an outline of the psychology of group membership in a way which is neither merely psychological nor merely sociological but which, I hope, may contribute to the growth of a body of concepts and principles of truly social-psychological nature"--Preface.

The respondents were also queried about their political party attachments, voting behavior, campaign activities, and attitudes toward campaign financing. Demographic data include age, sex, marital status, education, religion, occupation, and country of birth, if applicable

Americans' use of time, 1965-1966, and time use in economic and social accounts, 1975-1976 : merged data by Philip E Converse( Book )

8 editions published between 1980 and 1984 in 3 languages and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This data collection contains a single concatenated file that merges common variables for respondents from two separate surveys, including 1,241 respondents from AMERICAN'S USE OF TIME, 1965-1966 (ICPSR 7254), and 812 respondents from TIME USE IN ECONOMIC AND SOCIAL ACCOUNTS, 1975-1976 (ICPSR 7580), for a total of 2,053 respondents. The sample was restricted to match the design of the earlier study, so the merged file includes data for individual Americans between 19 and 65 years of age living in cities with a population between 30,000 and 280,000, and in households that had at least one adult employed in a non-farming occupation. Two general types of information were gathered in both studies: sociodemographic background characteristics and time use data for a 24-hour period. The 1965-1966 time use data were obtained from a diary of activities kept by the respondent over a 24-hour period, and the 1975-1976 data were collected in face-to-face interviews. In both cases, the sociodemographic data also were gathered from personal interviews. The merged file contains sociodemographic background data that includes age, sex, race, relationship to head of household, occupation, marital status, number and age of children in household, homeowner/renter status, residence tenure, number of paid household help, number of books owned, church/religious preferences, highest level of education attained, whether raised on a farm, and income level. The time use data in the merged file chronicles activities such as work outside the home, household/domestic work, child care, obtaining goods and services, personal care needs, education and professional training, organization involvement, entertainment/social activities, sports/active leisure, and passive leisure ...

ICPSR Instructional Subset: Quality of American Life, 1971 by Angus Campbell( )

7 editions published between 1977 and 1984 in 3 languages and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study contains an instructional subset of the survey data gathered in the study QUALITY OF AMERICAN LIFE, 1971 (ICPSR 3508), collected from a nationwide probability sample of 2,164 persons 18 years of age and older. The survey was designed to measure respondents' perceptions of their socio-psychological condition, their needs and expectations from life, and the degree to which these needs were satisfied. For instructional purposes, this subset contains 80 variables, presented in their raw, unweighted form, for use with the subset's codebook, which gives seven basic pieces of information about each of the variables. In some cases the variables from the original study have been recoded for ease of analysis by students. The questions included in this instructional subset are representative of the major areas of the original, longer survey. The first several variables establish the respondent's social role. These background variables include education received, sex, age, marital status, religious preference, and occupational group. Next, several variables deal with the respondent's place of residence and attitudes toward that residence. Information on the length of time in the community and in the particular dwelling are followed by questions about the respondent's views toward the neighborhood. The study also asks the respondent for views regarding the adequacy of government activity. In a third section of the subset the respondent is asked to choose between a number of pairs of adjectives as best describing his or her life. In the last section of the study the respondent is asked questions regarding the sources of satisfaction in his or her life, including religion, government, and organizational memberships ...
