28 editions published between 1957 and 1980 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 698 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Interviews were taken with a national sample of 2460 adults. The questionnaire focused on various areas of life in which problems may be felt - including marriage and parenthood, the work situation and general social relationships. 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. Additional questions probed reactions to normal conflict situations such as failure to do well or anger at someone close. Respondents' self-perceptions were explored

12 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 190 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)

The purpose of this data collection is to provide an appropriate theoretical and empirical approach to concepts, measures, and methods in the study of Black Americans. The questionnaire was developed over two years, with input from social scientists, students, and a national advisory panel of Black scholars. The final instrument encompasses several broad areas related to Black American life. The study explores neighborhood-community integration, services, crime and community contact, the role of religion and the church, physical and mental health, and self-esteem. 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.

Michigan Student Study : Opinions, Expectations, and Experiences of Undergraduate Students, 1990-1994 by Gerald Gurin( )

2 editions published in 2004 in No Linguistic content and English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Michigan Student Study was designed to examine the factors that influence students' intellectual responses to issues of racial and ethnic diversity. The focus was not only on the attitudes and experiences of students of color (Asian American, Latino/Hispanic, African American and Native American students) but on the contribution of diversity to the broader intellectual experiences of White students as well. The longitudinal design of the Michigan Study allowed for consideration of what students bring to the university at entrance, as well as documenting important changes as they move toward graduation. One set of questions addressed the general undergraduate experience of students at the University of Michigan, the positive and negative aspects of their experiences with faculty, interactions with fellow students, extracurricular involvements, reactions to their academic and intellectual experiences, and how similar or different the experiences of students of different racial/ethnic backgrounds were. Another set of questions dealt with the racial "climate" on campus, the degree of racial tension, the students' perceptions of and responses to the University's commitment to multiculturalism and diversity, the perceptions and views that students brought to the campus and how much they were affected and changed by their experiences at the University of Michigan, the positive aspects and specific arenas of concern for the various groups of students around multiculturalism, and the relevancy of the University's commitment to multiculturalism and diversity ...

Economic Incentives, Values and Subjective Well-Being, 1971-1974 by Burkhard Strümpel( )

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

This study is composed of four data files 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 traditional series of Economic Behavior Program questions on consumer attitudes and expectations, price changes, unemployment, and consumer products satisfaction. Demographic variables describe age, sex, race, marital status, education, occupation, income, number of children, religion, and party identification
