Summary:

This study is part of the University of California's Five-Year Study of anti-Semitism in the United States. As a result of the outbreak of Black rioting during the summer of 1964, it was decided to expand the proposed Black subsample of the national sample to a larger Black oversample in order to study the climate of opinion in the Black American community. These Black respondents were selected by drawing five samples: one general metropolitan sample and four urban samples from Chicago, New York, Atlanta, and Birmingham. Questions were asked about the respondents' present economic and social positions as well as the economic and social conditions in their childhood. Respondents' opinions on civil rights issues as well as attitudes toward authority and treatment of Blacks in the existing system were investigated. A section of the questionnaire was devoted to the respondents' attitudes toward Jews and other groups.
