Information was sought about the respondents' use of leisure time, including group memberships and time spent with friends and realtives. Respondents were asked what things worried them and how they dealt with these worries. They were asked also to assess present happiness, the happiest time of their lives, and how they faced periods of unhappiness.

12 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Covering 5,891 trainees in a nationwide sample of 324 Manpower Development and Training Act (mdta) classes, this longitudinal study concentrated on how trainee attitudes and motives relate to program completion versus dropping out, and to subsequent job histories. Wage rate, extent or duration of employment, completion, dropout status (for employment, for other reasons, or discharged), and relevance of mdta training to subsequent work, were used as major criteria of program success. Racial and sex differences in life cycle stage (marital and family status), economic resources and pressures, attitudes toward work and skill learning, <efficacy (sense of control over one's fate), self-concept, and values, were surveyed by questionnaire. Program and individual factors (job seeking, skill level, impact of training, job placement, and others) were examined in terms of participation (completion or dropping out), wage rates, and employment level. In addition, effects of the administration of the questionnaire itself were noted. (Ly)

It also examines employment, the effects of chronic unemployment, the effects of race on the job, and interaction with family and friends. In addition, the survey provides information on racial attitudes, race identity, group stereotypes, and race ideology. Demographic variables include education, income, occupation, and political behavior and affiliation
Economic incentives, values, and subjective well-being : spring 1971--fall 1974 by Burkhard Strümpel( Book )

3 editions published in 1976 in English and Undetermined and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The data were collected in an effort to construct and apply survey indicators of economic well-being and motivation, and to link changes in them to trends in the American economy. The work aims at measuring economic welfare, its dimensions, its situational (''objective'') and psychological (''subjective'') bases, and its consequences for economic behavior and system orientations. The surveys explore such matters as respondents' expectations concerning income changes, respondents' opinions about the equity of their income in comparison with that of others, and respondents' beliefs about which factors should determine a fair amount of pay. Aspects of a job which most concern respondents are probed. A special section explores attitudes toward women's participation in the labor force. Information is sought about respondents' satisfaction with income, job, and standard of living, and how well the present standard of living matches past expectations. Various personal trust, control, and achievement items are included. Among the personal data reported are marital status, education, age, sex, race, occupation of respondent and head, income, number of children, and party identification

Americans View Their Mental Health, 1957 by Gerald Gurin( )

6 editions published between 1957 and 1984 in 3 languages and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1957, the United States Congress established the Joint Commission on Mental Illness and Health to evaluate the nation's resources for coping with both the psychological and economic problems of mental illness. The Commission sponsored a nationwide survey, which was conducted by the Survey Research Center at the University of Michigan, to assess the subjective mental health of ''normal'' American adults and to determine in detail how they coped with problems of adjustment. During the spring of 1957, a sample of American adults was interviewed on various areas in which problems might arise, including marriage, parenthood, employment, and general social relationships. Information about leisure time, past and present physical and mental health, and motives for affiliation, achievement, and power were also sought. Three questionnaire forms were employed, each addressed to a randomly selected third of the sample

6 editions published between 1974 and 2000 in 3 languages and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study is composed of four fichiers and includes data from three national cross-section surveys and a sample of young families in two major cities. The data were collected in an effort to construct and apply survey indicators of economic well-being and motivation, and to link changes in them to trends in the American economy. The work aims at measuring economic welfare, its dimensions, its situational (objective) and psychological (subjective) bases, and its consequences for economic behavior and for people's orientation to the larger social system. The focus is on the mutual interdependence of people and the economy. Consideration is given to both the problem of how people influence the economy and the impact of economic changes on people's well-being, their sense of equity and fairness, and their orientation toward societal institutions and the political system. Part 1 data are comprised of data collected in April-May 1971, from a relatively homogeneous sample of young families in Detroit and Baltimore, Part 2 data are from the Survey Research Center's Omnibus Survey, Spring 1972, Part 3 data are from the Omnibus Survey, Fall 1973, and Part 4 data are from the Omnibus Survey, Fall 1974. Respondents were asked about their expectations concerning changes in their income, their feelings about the equity of their income renumeration in comparison with that of others, and their beliefs about which factors should determine a fair amount of pay. Additional items explored respondents' attitudes toward women's participation in the labor force, and work. Information was also elicited about respondents' satisfaction with their job, standard of living, and amount in savings, and how their current standard of living matched past expectations. Various personal trust, control, and achievement items are also included. The data collection also contains the ... Cf.: http://webapp.icpsr.umich.edu/cocoon/ICPSR-STUDY/03512.xml
