Summary
This survey was undertaken to assess consumer sentiment and buying plans. Open-ended questions were asked concerning evaluations and expectations about personal finances, employment, recession, price changes, and the national business situation. Additional questions probed respondents' buying intentions for a house, automobiles, appliances, and other consumer durables, and the respondents' appraisals of present market conditions for purchasing a house. Other items elicited information on respondents' degree of satisfaction with the amount of money in their savings accounts, their assessments of their financial status relative to the previous year and to that of their parents at a comparable age, their views of government and government officials, government's role in improving the quality of life, future energy supply, and their feelings about their lives, satisfaction with life in the United States, and their income and jobs. Data were also collected on respondents' knowledge of current affairs, as well as their opinions of the relative merits of small cars and standard full-size cars and foreign and American cars, penalties for marijuana use, treatment by public officials, freedom to make public speeches against democracy, communism in the United States, the United States government's help to the South Vietnamese government, government support for the rights of Black people, racial desegregation, Black empowerment, causes of crime and lawlessness, monetary drive of lawyers and doctors, the state of the public good, and unionization of workers. Respondents also provided information on their car ownership and plans to buy a new one, political party identification, self-identified ideological position, political party candidate preference, the state of health of respondents' parents and the health care and physical assistance provided. Demographic variables describe respondents' age, sex, race, marital status, education, occupation, religion, employment status, and family income
