National Survey of Black Americans Series RSS

Investigator(s): James S. Jackson, Harold W. Neighbors, and Gerald Gurin

The National Survey of Black Americans (NSBA) series was developed by the Program for Research on Black Americans at the Institute for Social Research, University of Michigan. It was initiated in 1977 with funding provided by the National Institute of Mental Health, Center for the Study of Minority Group Mental Health. The series was developed to address the limitations in the existing research literature on the study of Black Americans. It seeks to provide an appropriate theoretical and empirical approach to concepts, measures, and methods in the study of Black Americans. The size and representativeness of the sample permit systematic investigation of the heterogeneity of the adult Black population. The series furnishes data on major social, economic, and psychological aspects of Black American life.
