Summary
These data, collected by the University of Kansas' Midwest Psychological Field Station staff during 1963-1964, represent a census of all out-of-family behavior settings in the small town of Oskaloosa, Kansas. The study examined how behavior settings admit or attract people of various ages and demographic backgrounds, and how these people participate in the settings, once admitted. Data were collected on 884 behavior settings, such as award ceremonies, banks, sporting events, cemeteries, cooking classes, dances, academic examinations, business meetings, parades, religious services, spelling bees, taverns, street fairs, telephone booths, weddings, and places of employment. Once identified, each behavior setting was evaluated, and information was gathered on the amount of time spent in the setting by various town population subgroups, the number of persons entering the setting at least once during the year, the number of local and out-of-town participants and spectators, the type of activity exhibited in the setting, the behavior mechanisms present in the setting, and a general richness index
