Summary
The Americans and the Arts study is a series of studies measuring participation in and attitudes about the arts and arts in education. In 1973 care was taken to avoid any bias in the wording or emphasis of the questions so that respondents would not feel pressure to provide "right" answers. A total of 3,005 personal interviews averaging one hour and thirty four minutes in length were conducted in January 1973. The 1975 Americans and the Arts collected data from 1,555 respondents in interviews conducted in June 1975. The Americans and the Arts 1980 collected data from 1,501 respondents between July 17 to July 28, 1980. The 1984 Americans and the Arts was administered to 1,504 respondents from March 5 to March 25, 1984. In 1987, in order to determine which adult member of the household will be interviewed, the interviewer asked for one of the following household members, in order of priority: youngest adult male at home, next youngest adult male at home, youngest adult female at home, or next youngest adult female at home. This survey was administered to 1,501 respondents selected from March 13 to April 6, 1987. For the 1992 study, "Frankel-Goldstein grids" were attached to the backs of cards for interviewers to use to select an adult if there is more than one in the household. An M or F designation was put on the front of the cards at a 66/33 ratio to help the completed interviews fall out 48 percent male and 52 percent female. Interviewers used this designation to determine which respondent to select if there is an eligible respondent of each sex residing in the household. This survey was administered to 1,500 adults from February 6 to February 25, 1992. The 1973 and 1975 surveys look at topics including childhood arts exposure, current arts participation, leisure activities, and attitudes regarding arts and arts funding. The 1980, 1984, 1987, and 1992 Americans the Arts measured topics including attendance, participation, art, and education, funding, individual artists, TV and the arts, children and the arts, and support for the arts. Survey sampling differences preclude comparisons with measures of arts participation between the 1973 and 1975 Americans and the Arts studies which used face-to-face interviewing and the 1980, 1984, 1987, and 1992 studies which used computer-assisted telephone interviewing
