Summary
The Los Angeles Metropolitan Area Surveys [LAMAS] 1, 1970 collection features data gathered in 1970 as part of the Los Angeles Metropolitan Area Surveys (LAMAS). The LAMAS, beginning in the spring of 1970, are a shared-time omnibus survey of Los Angeles County community members, usually repeated twice annually. The LAMAS were conducted ten times between 1970 and 1976 in an effort to develop a set of standard community profile measures appropriate for use in the planning and evaluation of public policy. The LAMAS instruments, indexes, and scales were used to track the development and course of social indicators (including social, psychological, health, and economic variables) and the impact of public policy on the community. Questions in this survey covered respondents' attitudes toward the following topics: air pollution, health care services in the community, local government politics, police relations, recreation, and leisure time. In addition, participating researchers were given the option of submitting questions to be asked in addition to the core items. Additional question topics included: politics in general, mobility, housing, schools, segregation, and social attitudes and opinions. Demographic information collected includes age, race, sex, religion, marital status, education, income, and geographic origin
