Quality of life in the Detroit metropolitan area, 1975 by Willard L Rodgers ( )

This study of 1,194 adults in Wayne, Oakland, and Macomb counties in Detroit in 1975 was part of an extensive research project designed to produce important theoretical and operationally useful research results on the urban environment and quality of life. Respondents were either the head, or the spouse of the head, of household. The sample provided adequate representation of both Detroit itself and the surrounding area, and of racial and economic subgroups. It was taken from the geographic area defined as the 1971 Detroit SMSA, which included Wayne, Oakland, and Macomb counties. Data were gathered on population, housing, and neighborhood characteristics, including percentagized data on age groups, unemployment rate, labor force, occupancy and vacancy rate, tenureship, single family ownership, ownership or rental by racial groups, crime rate, injuries, and ejection. Respondents were asked about the public transportation system, schools, recreational opportunities, public safety, housing, and sanitation in their neighborhood. Other items probed respondents' feelings about their neighborhood, work, the Detroit tri-county area in relative terms, preferred place to live in the United States and reasons for their choice, future unemployment in the Detroit tri-county area, city officials, taxes and the variety of local services taxes were used for, and use of violence to effect social change. Additional items probed respondents opinions about private schools, quality of public schools, the police, neighborhood problems, and integrated neighborhoods, as well as recreational activities. Also probed were respondents' satisfaction with their life, time spent with family, marriage, housing, government's recreational facilities for children in their neighborhood, and the quality and price of foods in supermarkets. Background items specify age, date of birth... Cf.: http://webapp.icpsr.umich.edu/cocoon/ICPSR-STUDY/07986.xml

Measurement error in cross-sectional and longitudinal labor market surveys : results from two validation studies ( )
1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This paper reports evidence on the error properties of survey reports of labor market variables such as earnings and work hours. Our primary data source is the PSID Validation Study, a two-wave panel survey of a sample of workers employed by a large firm which also allowed us access to its very detailed records of its workers earnings. etc. The second data source uses individuals' 1977 and 1978 (March Current Population Survey) reports of earnings, matched to Social Security earnings records. In both data sets, individuals: reports of earnings are fairly accurately reported, and the errors are negatively related to true earnings. The latter property reduces the bias due to measurement error when earnings are used as an independent variable, but (unlike the classical-error case) leads to some bias when earnings are the dependent variable. Measurement-error-induced biases when change in earnings is the variable of interest are larger, but not dramatically so. Various measures of hourly earnings were much less reliable than annual earnings. Retrospective reports of unemployment showed considerable under-reporting, even of long spells
Cohorts, Chronology, and Collective Memories ( )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
We asked Americans to tell us the national and world events that they believe to have been especially important since the 1930's, using replicated cross-section surveys carried out in 1985, in 2000, and September 11, 2001. Our primary interests are, first, in how collective memories change as new events occur, such as the end of the Cold War or the 9/11 terrorist attack, and second, in whether the origin of such memories during the critical period of adolescence and early adulthood, as well as their connection with education, remain stable over time and consistent with theory. As part of our investigation we consider four related issues: collective forgetting as well as collective remembering. The distinction between ease of recalling events and judgments of their importance. Compound events which are composed of sub-events that can be remembered separately by respondents. And larger social and technological changes difficult or impossible to date with any precision. Panel data from the second and third surveys, obtained shortly before and after 9/11, aid in determining which earlier collective memories were superseded by the terrorist attack itself....

ICPSR Instructional Subset Quality of American Life, 1971 by Angus Campbell ( )
3 editions published in 1984 in 3 languages and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This study contains an instructional subset of the survey data gathered in the study QUALITY OF AMERICAN LIFE, 1971 (ICPSR 3508), collected from a nationwide probability sample of 2,164 persons 18 years of age and older. The survey was designed to measure respondents' perceptions of their socio-psychological condition, their needs and expectations from life, and the degree to which these needs were satisfied. For instructional purposes, this subset contains 80 variables, presented in their raw, unweighted form, for use with the subset's codebook, which gives seven basic pieces of information about each of the variables. In some cases the variables from the original study have been recoded for ease of analysis by students. The questions included in this instructional subset are representative of the major areas of the original, longer survey. The first several variables establish the respondent's social role. These background variables include education received, sex, age, marital status, religious preference, and occupational group. Next, several variables deal with the respondent's place of residence and attitudes toward that residence. Information on the length of time in the community and in the particular dwelling are followed by questions about the respondent's views toward the neighborhood. The study also asks the respondent for views regarding the adequacy of government activity. In a third section of the subset the respondent is asked to choose between a number of pairs of adjectives as best describing his or her life. In the last section of the study the respondent is asked questions regarding the sources of satisfaction in his or her life, including religion, government, and organizational memberships....
