Economic means for human needs : social indicators of well-being and discontent by Burkhard Strümpel( Book )
4 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 555 libraries worldwide
This book is concerned with the human conflict between needs and means, between material wants and lack of resources to satisfy them. Looking at both individuals and some segments of society, the authors measure economic well-being and define its objective and psychological bases, its dimensions, and its relationship to economic incentives. In the introduction an operational model of the interactions is presented as a conceptual framework. The articles in the book report on results of investigation in areas of research and development that have emerged from the model. Section I includes five papers that examine the sources and measurement of economic well-being. Their titles are (1) Economic Life Styles, Values, and Subjective Welfare; (2) Well-Being, Goals, and Motivation for Economic Advancement; (3) Persistence of Belief in Personal Financial Progress; (4) Effects of Social-Psychological Factors on Subjective Economic Welfare; and (5) Personal Efficacy and the Ideology of Individual Responsibility. Papers in Section ii explore the use of indicators of economic well-being as performance criteria and as components for an early warning system of individual maladjustment and social conflict. Titles of these papers are (6) Economic Well-Being as a Criterion for Performance: a Survey in Bulgaria and Greece; (7) The Quality of Consumption; (8) Economic Deprivation and Societal Discontent; (9) Factors Affecting Social Change; and (10) Responses to Economic Adversity: An Agenda for Research in a Changed Environment.

Black students on white campuses : the impacts of increased black enrollments by Marvin W Peterson( Book )
3 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 535 libraries worldwide
The responsiveness of 13 institutions to increased black enrollments is examined in this book. Focus is on the impacts of minority enrollments on the institutions--what kinds of changes took place and who felt the greatest impact because of the changes--and the reasons for success or failure of minority programs among the various schools. The problems of incorporating new porgrams into the existing structure are addressed. In recent years, new programs have been established at the periphery of the academic institutions with short-term outside funds. In the face of declining appropriations to higher education, these problems are crucial to the future of any new educational program. It is suggested that improvements in dealing with the changes brought by increased black enrollments can also be useful in institutional handling of the new wave of older, nontraditional students. The book is divided into the following sections: Evolution of a Complex Social Issue: The Basis for the Study; The Determinants and Dynamics of Change; Institutional Impacts and Responses; The 1975 Perspectives: Integration, Segregation, or Pluralism; and Evolution or Revolution: The Process Reviewed. Appended are the research design abstract, interview guide, survey questionnaire, samples and institutional response rates for the survey populations, evaluation methods (factor analysis); and mean scores on indices for faculty and administrators.

Technological advance in an expanding economy; its impact on a cross-section of the labor force by Eva Mueller( Book )
3 editions published in 1969 in English and held by 506 libraries worldwide
In 1967 the Survey Research Center at the University of Michigan conducted a nationwide survey to determine the impact of changes in machine technology on a cross-section of the labor force. Although many studies have been made about automation, this study was larger in scope than most research and made use of cross-sectional analysis to show the frequency of changes in machine technology and in what occupational and educational groups they occurred. Over a 5-year period about 10 percent of the labor force underwent one or more changes in machine technology which altered their work significantly, and technological advance changed about 2 or 3 percent of all jobs a year, about 1.5 to 2 million jobs. Individual chapters in this report contain detailed information on: (1) Machinery Use by the Work Force, (2) Change in Machine Technology, (3) Change-over Process to New Equipment, (4) Economic Consequences of Machine Technology, (5) Impact of Changes on Perceived Job Characteristics and Job Satisfaction, (6) Analyses of Cases who made a Poor Adjustment to Technological Change, and (7) Role of Education in Relation to Technological Change.
