Summary
This survey was undertaken to assess consumer sentiment and buying plans, respondents' satisfaction with the appliances owned, and their opinions about the Cold War between the former Soviet Union and the West and its perceived effect on taxes and the economy, as well as their assessment of the possibility of an outbreak of a major world war in the near future. Open-ended questions were asked concerning evaluations and expectations about price changes, employment, tax reduction, recession, and the national business situation. Additional variables probe respondents' buying intentions for a house, automobiles, appliances, and other consumer durables, as well as their appraisals of present market conditions for purchasing these items. Other variables probe respondents' satisfaction with their location, neighborhood, and living space, and their assessment of their financial status relative to the previous year. Information is also provided on savings. Demographic variables provide information on age, sex, race, marital status, education, occupation, and family income
