Public Awareness about Mental Retardation. CEC Research Monograph.
To identify the status of public knowledge about mental retardation, to discern public attitudes, and to obtain demographic information on attitudes, a questionnaire was submitted to approximately 1,515 subjects. Extensive results are reported by generic presentation of total responses, analysis of data by independent variables, and analysis of semantic differential. The major appendix provides information on the instrumentation for the study, the questionnaire, and the coding keys. Independent variables were sex, age, education, occupation, income, race, marital status, number of children, demography, geography, and religion. (JM)
