Summary
This data collection is one in a series of financial surveys of consumers conducted annually since 1946. In a nationally representative sample, the head of each spending unit (usually the husband, the main earner, or the owner of the home) was interviewed. The basic unit of reference in the study was the spending unit, but some family data are also available. The questions in the 1947 survey covered the respondent's attitudes toward national economic conditions and price activity, as well as the respondents' own financial situation. Other questions examined the spending unit head's occupation, and the nature and amount of the spending unit's income, debts, liquid assets, changes in liquid assets, savings, and actual and expected purchases of cars and other major durables. In addition, the survey explored the subject of housing and home ownership. The 1947 survey included a separate questionnaire for farmers containing differing questions on sources of income. Personal data include number of people in the spending unit, age, sex, and education of the head, and the race and sex of the respondent
