Summary
This survey was undertaken to assess consumer sentiment and buying plans, as well as role conflict and role ambiguity in the labor force, the financial effect of unemployment in the same family over a period of time, and the relationship of unemployment to mobility. Open-ended questions were asked concerning evaluations and expectations about price changes, employment, retirement, tax reduction, government spending, 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. There are also variables that provide information about job characteristics and organizational settings in which people experienced conflict and ambiguity and the health effects of such work-related problems. Additional variables provide information on respondents' attitudes toward and experience with installment credit and public spending, and respondents' savings and investments, as well as their assessment of their financial status relative to the previous year. Demographic variables provide information on age, sex, race, marital status, education, occupation, employment history, and family income
