[Family Research Council: 1993 Family Issues Survey Results.]

This document contains a variety of information sheets developed from a survey completed on behalf of the Family Research Council to explore the family attitudes of American adults (N=1,100). The top 10 findings from the 1993 Family Issues Survey are enumerated on a summary sheet. Following this summary, each of the top 10 findings is discussed individually on an "In Focus" sheet. "In Focus" sheets deal with these findings: (1) most Americans believe that the family is eroding, not merely changing; (2) African-Americans are the segment of American society most likely to believe children today have it rougher than their parents did when they were children; (3) most Americans value "traditional family values" more than tolerance for nontraditional lifestyles; (4) 9 out of 10 dual-earner couples believe mother at home is better than day care; (5) most workers would trade early retirement tomorrow for family time today; (6) by a two-to-one margin, Americans prefer low taxes to big government; (7) Perot voters could be a key education reform constituency; (8) veering left on social issues would hurt the Republican party in 1996; (9) most believe Dan Quayle was right: kids do fare best in two-parent families; and (10) consensus is possible on family issues if Americans put children first.
