Summary
This study of 780 adults in the Detroit metropolitan area provides information on their experiences with conflict situations and the ways in which they resolved them. Respondents' reactions to some actual events were probed, including problems involving neighbors, landlords, and government agencies, as well as situations of discrimination, and failure to receive entitlements due from insurance companies and government agencies. For each problematic area, respondents were asked to indicate how the conflict was resolved. Also explored were respondents' perceptions of and interactions with lawyers and their views on what could be done if an unfair law or decision were passed. Additional items probed respondents' views of Detroit, their neighborhood, the legal system, and the police. Demographic variables specify age, race, gender, education, marital status, place of birth, nationality, occupation, number of children, religion, home ownership, family income, and length of residence in the Detroit area
