Current Social Issues: The Public's View. Findings from a Series of National Surveys, Spring 1975.
Institute of Life Insurance, New York, NY.
The findings of this national survey of public attitudes are the second in a series of reports reflecting important trends in American society. The survey is one of a number made on behalf of the life insurance business by the Institute of Life Insurance. Data for the survey were collected in personal interviews with 1,500 to 3,000 adults. Scientific procedures were followed to make the samples representative of the United States population 18 years old and over. Findings report the public's view on new attitudes toward the family, changes in traditional sex roles, people's orientation toward the present versus the future, feelings of personal control or lack of control, consumerism, civil rights, birth control, gun control, marijuana legalization, and communal living. The findings are reported in statistical percentage charts, along with brief narratives which analyze and interpret the data. (Author/JR)
