Military Officers' Attitudes Toward Arms Control, 1972-1973 (ICPSR 5802)

Principal Investigator(s):


This study contains data from 342 interviews of a random sample of officers attending the United States Naval War College. There is a total of 184 variables: 27 biographical, and 143 questions designed to measure attitudes towards arms control, strategic weapons, international politics, and authoritarianism, dogmatism, and strong-mindedness among the upward-bound officers of the services. Two interviews were given, one in the fall and one in the spring of 1972-73.
