Summary
This study is composed of four data files and includes data from three national cross-section surveys and a sample of young families in two major cities. The data were collected in an effort to construct and apply survey indicators of economic well-being and motivation, and to link changes in them to trends in the American economy. The work aims at measuring economic welfare, its dimensions, its situational (objective) and psychological (subjective) bases, and its consequences for economic behavior and for people's orientation to the larger social system. The focus is on the mutual interdependence of people and the economy. Consideration is given to both the problem of how people influence the economy and the impact of economic changes on people's well-being, their sense of equity and fairness, and their orientation toward societal institutions and the political system. Part 1 data are comprised of data collected in April-May 1971, from a relatively homogeneous sample of young families in Detroit and Baltimore, Part 2 data are from the Survey Research Center's Omnibus Survey, Spring 1972, Part 3 data are from the Omnibus Survey, Fall 1973, and Part 4 data are from the Omnibus Survey, Fall 1974. Respondents were asked about their expectations concerning changes in their income, their feelings about the equity of their income renumeration in comparison with that of others, and their beliefs about which factors should determine a fair amount of pay. Additional items explored respondents' attitudes toward women's participation in the labor force, and work. Information was also elicited about respondents' satisfaction with their job, standard of living, and amount in savings, and how their current standard of living matched past expectations. Various personal trust, control, and achievement items are also included. The data collection also contains the traditional series of Economic Behavior Program questions on consumer attitudes and expectations, price changes, unemployment, and consumer products satisfaction. Demographic variables describe age, sex, race, marital status, education, occupation, income, number of children, religion, and party identification
