Summary
This survey was undertaken to assess consumer sentiment and buying plans, as well as hidden unemployment among males aged 16-21, the extent to which youths continued their education, joined the armed forces, or took part-time work when they could not find full-time jobs, the cost and perceived importance and meaning of college education for males and females, and the perceived relative merits of state and private universities. Open-ended questions were asked concerning evaluations and expectations about price changes, employment, retirement, recession, and the national business situation. Other 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. Additional variables probe respondents' opinions on the Cold War between the former Soviet Union and the West, the proposed government tax reduction, and the effect of these on business conditions, as well as their assessment of their financial status relative to the previous year. Information is also provided on respondents' savings, monthly bill payments, political party affiliation, club membership, and type of house and neighborhood lived in. Demographic variables provide information on age, race, sex, religion, education, marital status, occupation, family size, and family income
