Social psychology; the study of human interaction by Theodore M Newcomb ( Book )
35 editions published between 1965 and 1975 in English and Undetermined and held by 863 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 quality of American life, 1978 by Angus Campbell ( Book )
9 editions published between 1978 and 1984 in 3 languages and held by 104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This dataset is a continuation of one created seven years earlier, QUALITY OF AMERICAN LIFE, 1971 (ICPSR 3508). In the 1978 study, a national sample was drawn that included many respondents from the 1971 study. The purpose of the study was to survey Americans about their perceived quality of life by measuring their perceptions of their socio-psychological condition, their needs and expectations from life, and the degree to which those needs were satisfied. The data, similar in scope and content of that in the 1971 survey, were collected via personal interviews from a nationwide probability sample of 3,692 persons 18 years of age and older during the summer of 1978. Closed and open-ended questions were used to probe respondents' satisfactions, dissatisfactions, aspirations, and disappointments in a variety of life domains, such as dwelling/neighborhood, local services (e.g., police, roads, and schools), public transportation, present personal life, life in the United States, education, occupation, job history/expectation, work life, housework, leisure activities, organizational affiliations, religious affiliation, health problems, financial situation, marriage (including widowhood, divorce, and separation), children/family life, and relationships with family and friends. In addition to broad questions about satisfaction with each of these domains and their importance to the respondents, specific sources of gratification and frustration were explored. Other questions focused on life as a whole and about the extent to which respondents felt they had control over their lives (e.g., rating of various aspects of life, (dis)satisfaction with life, personal efficacy, and social desirability measures). A major difference between this study and the earlier study is that the 1978 respondents were asked more detailed questions concerning their perceived financial status relative to their family, friends, and past personal financial status. Personal data include sex, age, race, ethnic background, childhood family stability, military service, and father's occupation and education. Observational data are included on housing and neighborhood characteristics as well as respondents' appearance, intelligence, and sincerity

Open-ended questions measured the respondents' attitudes toward the problems confronting Canada, campaign issues, and also their political efficacy and trust in government.

French national election study, 1967 by Philip E Converse ( Book )
8 editions published between 1967 and 1984 in 3 languages and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This post-election study focused on French citizens' attitudes toward politics, partisan preferences, and problems facing France. Respondents were asked about their participation in the election campaign, their interest in politics, their voting history, and other political activities. They were also asked to evaluate the performance of political parties on particular policies. Another section of the survey probed the respondents' perceptions of representation and the responsibility of the representatives to their constituents. Demographic data include sex, age, level of education, marital status, religion, occupation, union membership, and monthly income level

Americans' use of time, 1965-1966, and time use in economic and social accounts, 1975-1976 : merged data by Philip E Converse ( Book )
7 editions published between 1980 and 1984 in 3 languages and held by 30 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....

Americans' use of time : 1965-1966 by Philip E Converse ( Book )
6 editions published between 1980 and 1984 in 3 languages and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
These data were gathered as part of a multinational time budget project (see also TIME USE IN ECONOMIC AND SOCIAL ACCOUNTS, 1975-1976 [ICPSR 7580] and AMERICANS' USE OF TIME, 1965-1966, AND TIME USE IN ECONOMIC AND SOCIAL ACCOUNTS, 1975-1976: MERGED DATA [ICPSR 7796]). This study includes variables of two general types. One group concerns sociodemographic characteristics of respondents and households, the other set deals with time use. The time use data were obtained by having respondents keep a complete diary of their activities for a single 24-hour period between November 15 and December 15, 1965, or between March 7 and April 29, 1966. Additional data were gathered from an interview taken on the day after the diary was completed. Data on both primary and secondary time use were recorded, along with where and with whom the activities took place
