Summary
The Los Angeles Metropolitan Area Surveys [LAMAS] 7, 1973 collection reflects data gathered in 1973 as part of the Los Angeles Metropolitan Area Studies (LAMAS). The LAMAS, beginning in the spring of 1970, are a shared-time omnibus survey of Los Angeles County community members, usually repeated twice annually. The LAMAS were conducted ten times between 1970 and 1976 in an effort to develop a set of standard community profile measures appropriate for use in the planning and evaluation of public policy. The LAMAS instruments, indexes, and scales were used to track the development and course of social indicators (including social, psychological, health, and economic variables) and the impact of public policy on the community. Questions in this survey cover respondents' attitudes toward the following topics: community and public services, local government politics, political efficacy, residential mobility, and integration of their neighborhood. In addition, participating researchers were given the option of submitting questions to be asked in addition to the core items. These additional question topics include: travel time to work, number of vehicles, means of transportation, and alcohol use, as well as drinking and driving. Demographic variables in this collection include sex, age, race, ethnicity, education, occupation, income, religion, marital status, birth place, and housing type
