Summary
This instructional subset contains information from one of the 42 series of the Surveys of Public Attitudes and Response to Federal Energy Policy conducted for the United States Federal Energy Administration by the Opinion Research Corporation of Princeton, New Jersey. The surveys were administered as part of a program to ascertain on a timely basis the American public's knowledge, beliefs, attitudes, motivations, preferences, and behavior regarding issues of energy conservation and the environment. The topical coverage of the surveys dealt with the public's perception of the role of the federal government in the energy policy area, personal knowledge and sources of information about energy, perceptions of actual or potential government action, and personal efforts to conserve energy. Information was also obtained on the respondents' behavior with regard to home insulation, driving habits, and the use of mass transit. Items in this subset focus primarily on assessing the impact of the 1973-1974 energy shortage and the accompanying recession on the respondents' lives and economic behavior. Items include questions about job loss or cutbacks, as well as questions about changes that were made in the respondents' energy usage as a result of the shortage. Other items provide information on changes in respondents' plans regarding the purchase of appliances or homes, the effect of inflation on their shopping behavior, and their opinions about the cause, impact, and length of the energy shortage and possible policy solutions. Demographic items specify age, sex, education, income, race, employment, and number of automobiles in the household. See the related collection, ICPSR INSTRUCTIONAL SUBSET: FEA SURVEY 18--SURVEYS OF PUBLIC ATTITUDES AND RESPONSE TO FEDERAL ENERGY POLICY, 1974-1976 (ICPSR 7585). Each of these subsets is a discrete independent dataset
