8 editions published between 1959 and 1984 in 3 languages and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study was conducted in 1953 and 1954 in both urban and rural areas of Puerto Rico. The interviews explored the relationship between husband and wife in questions about family organization and role, degree of intimacy, sexual relations, and satisfaction with the marriage. Further variables probed attitudes toward children: ideal family size, the importance of children in marriage, and parent-child relations. The study also examined the respondents' attitudes toward birth control, knowledge of where to obtain birth control materials, and birth control methods the respondents used. Derived measures include several Guttman scales. Of the total sample, 566 interviews were conducted with wives only, and 322 with husbands and wives together

Theory and experiment in social communication by University of Michigan( Book )

2 editions published in 1952 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book compiles findings from the Research Center for Group Dynamics at the University of Michigan. The members of this group conducted a program of research, including two field studies and a number of laboratory experiments, in the area of social communication. This compilation presents the reports of the laboratory studies together with a theoretical orientation of the work that has been done. These studies have centered mainly on two sets of problems, namely, communication stemming from pressures toward uniformity in groups and communication in hierarchical structures. The reports of the experiments in this compilation are along these lines. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2005 APA, all rights reserved)
