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 variables probe respondents' buying intentions for a house, automobiles, appliances, and other consumer durables, and respondents' appraisals of present market conditions for purchasing houses and other durables. Other variables probe respondents' assessments of their financial status relative to the previous year, as well as their opinions of Gerald Ford and Jimmy Carter in comparative terms as to who would do a better job and improve the economy if elected as president, and of fuel economy cars. Information is also provided on respondents' investments in stocks or bonds, debts owed, car owned and the plans to buy a new vehicle, towns lived in five years ago, type of house lived in currently and for what length of time in the year, and the number of telephones owned. Demographic variables provide information on respondents' age, sex, race, marital status, education, occupation, employment status, and family income
