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. Demographic variables include education, income, occupation, and political behavior and affiliation

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
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 79 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

6 editions published between 1974 and 2000 in 3 languages and held by 17 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... Cf.: http://webapp.icpsr.umich.edu/cocoon/ICPSR-STUDY/03512.xml

Michigan Student Study Opinions, Expectations, and Experiences of Undergraduate Students, 1990-1994 ( )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 16 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....
