This type of information is essential for forecasting changes in aggregate consumer behavior. Each quarterly survey contains approximately 40 questions, each of which probes a different aspect of consumer confidence. Open-ended questions are asked concerning evaluations and expectations about personal finances, employment, price changes, and the national business situation.

National Health Interview Survey, 1988 AIDS Knowledge and Attitudes Supplement ( file )
22 editions published between 1990 and 1993 in English and held by 153 libraries worldwide
The basic purpose of the National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) is to obtain information about the amount and distribution of illness, its effects in terms of disability and chronic impairments, and the kinds of health services people receive. Each year, the National Center for Health Statistics conducts the NHIS, a personal interview household survey that uses a nationwide sample of the civilian, noninstitutionalized population of the United States. The NHIS includes a core set of questions that remains virtually unchanged across years on a variety of sociodemographic and health-related concerns. In addition, one or more current health topics is selected for special emphasis annually. For this supplement on occupational health, adult sample persons were asked questions regarding their lifetime working status and their work experience in the year prior to the interview. The primary focus of the supplement was on those individuals who had worked at civilian jobs in the prior year. These persons were asked about work-related injuries, back pain, hand discomfort, skin conditions, eye, nose, and throat irritations, health conditions, and smoking. Those who had previously worked, but not in the prior year, were asked questions about lifetime work experience, and then skipped to the questions on chronic conditions and smoking. Sample persons whose work during the prior year was active military duty also followed this sequence of questions. Those who had never worked were only asked about smoking. This collection also contains data from the basic questionnaire (see NATIONAL HEALTH INTERVIEW SURVEY, 1988 [ICPSR 9412]), including age, sex, race, marital status, education, veteran status, income, family relationship, self-reported health status, and activity limitations, and the number of bed days, doctor visits, and hospital stays in the previous ye...

National crime surveys : cities, 1972-1975 by United States( Book )
14 editions published between 1978 and 1988 in English and Undetermined and held by 121 libraries worldwide
This subsample of the national crime surveys consists of data on personal and household victimization for persons aged 12 and older in 26 major United States cities in the period 1972-1975. The National Crime Surveys were designed by the Bureau of Justice Statistics to meet three primary objectives: (1) to develop detailed information about the victims and consequences of crime, (2) to estimate the numbers and types of crimes not reported to police, and (3) to provide uniform measures of selected types of crimes in order to permit reliable comparisons over time and between areas. The surveys provide measures of victimization on the basis of six crimes (including attempts): rape, robbery, assault, burglary, larceny, and motor vehicle theft. The total National Crime Survey employed two distinct samples: a National Sample, and a Cities Sample. The cities sample consists of information about victimization in 26 major United States cities. The data collection was conducted by the United States Census Bureau, initial processing of the data and documentation was performed by the Data Use and Access Laboratories (DUALabs), and subsequent processing was performed by the ICPSR under grants from the Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS). This Cities Attitude Sub-Sample study also includes information on personal attitudes and perceptions of crime and the police, the fear of crime, and the effect of this fear on behavioral patterns such as choice of shopping areas and places of entertainment. Data are provided on reasons for respondents' choice of neighborhood, and feelings about neighborhood, crime, personal safety, and the local police. Also specified are date, type, place, and nature of the incidents, injuries suffered, hospital treatment and medical expenses incurred, offender's personal profile, relationship of offender to victim, property stolen and va...

Southern primaries and elections, 1920-1948 : Florida by Alexander Heard( Book )
14 editions published between 1950 and 1979 in English and Undetermined and held by 110 libraries worldwide
This study contains county-level electoral returns for selected general and primary elections in eleven southern states. These data, originally collected as part of a study of the electoral process in the South conducted by the Bureau of Public Administration at the University of Alabama, were keypunched by ICPSR from Southern Primaries and Elections, 1920-1949 (University of Alabama Press, 1950), edited by Alexander Heard and Donald S. Strong. The machine-readable collection, which essentially replicates the information published in the Southern Primaries volume, includes returns for contests for governor, senator, and, occasionally president, and contains selected percentages as well as raw vote totals. While most primary election returns included were held for Democratic nominations, a few Republican primaries are also available. Several additional categories of data, such as returns for selected referenda and poll tax payments, are also included in the files as well
National survey of Black Americans, 1979-1980 by James S Jackson( Book )
10 editions published between 1987 and 1999 in 3 languages and held by 110 libraries worldwide
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 quality of American life, 1978 by Angus Campbell( Book )
9 editions published between 1978 and 1984 in 3 languages and held by 108 libraries worldwide
This dataset is a continuation of one created seven years earlier, QUALITY OF AMERICAN LIFE, 1971 (ICPSR 3508). In the 1978 study, a national sample was drawn that included many respondents from the 1971 study. The purpose of the study was to survey Americans about their perceived quality of life by measuring their perceptions of their socio-psychological condition, their needs and expectations from life, and the degree to which those needs were satisfied. The data, similar in scope and content of that in the 1971 survey, were collected via personal interviews from a nationwide probability sample of 3,692 persons 18 years of age and older during the summer of 1978. Closed and open-ended questions were used to probe respondents' satisfactions, dissatisfactions, aspirations, and disappointments in a variety of life domains, such as dwelling/neighborhood, local services (e.g., police, roads, and schools), public transportation, present personal life, life in the United States, education, occupation, job history/expectation, work life, housework, leisure activities, organizational affiliations, religious affiliation, health problems, financial situation, marriage (including widowhood, divorce, and separation), children/family life, and relationships with family and friends. In addition to broad questions about satisfaction with each of these domains and their importance to the respondents, specific sources of gratification and frustration were explored. Other questions focused on life as a whole and about the extent to which respondents felt they had control over their lives (e.g., rating of various aspects of life, (dis)satisfaction with life, personal efficacy, and social desirability measures). A major difference between this study and the earlier study is that the 1978 respondents were asked more detailed questions concerning their perceived financial status relative...
