Summary:

This data collection is the result of surveys of undergraduate students at the University of Michigan enrolled in the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts during the period 1972 to 1991. As part of an undergraduate research methods course primarily for sociology majors, students and staff developed survey instruments, each with a central focus and other timely substantive content. Major focus areas were related to academics and student life, such as life on a university campus, study habits, academic performance, major source of college funding, use of alcoholic beverages, and campus law enforcement. Other topics covered were rights of women, military draft, Equal Rights Amendment, homosexuality, racial attitudes and experiences, and affirmative action. Students were also asked their views on Clarence Thomas, the Holocaust, Saddam Hussein, troops in Saudi Arabia, Ronald Reagan, and other topics. Data are provided for 1972, 1973, 1975, 1977, 1979, 1984, 1990, and 1991. Demographic variables include religion, sex, grade-point average, ethnicity, area of birth, parents' education, and area of academic study.
