Summary
This study focused on the total economic effort of families, the outside constraints and inner desires that affected that effort, and the attitudes and views that might have an impact on the quantity and the efficiency of work. Information was obtained about the extent to which families worked, planned ahead, accepted change, avoided risk, and kept a realizable set of goals. Respondents were asked about the kinds of work they did, their level of job satisfaction, their desire and opportunity to work more hours, their job history and any plans for changing to another type of job, and their plans for future retirement or present experience if already retired. Questions also elicited information about aspirations for the education of children, arrangements for child care and household help, frequency of meals taken in restaurants, type of residence occupied, and plans to move, if any. Data are provided on family history, including information about college attended by both head and wife, places in which the family lived in the past, and perceptions of personal efficacy. Income questions included amount of money earned, amount received from investments, and amount from transfer income. Demographic information on household head covers age, sex, race, marital status, religious affiliation, and political party membership. Data on family composition are also available
