Taxonomy of Organizations, 1960-1962 (ICPSR 7313)
Principal Investigator(s): Haas, J. Eugene; Hall, Richard H.; Johnson, Norman
This study collected data from 75 organizations in Ohio covering a broad range of organizational types such as schools, universities, hospitals, religious and military organizations, retail, services and manufacturing organizations, penal institutions, farms, and the press. Information was obtained from organization heads, other knowledgeable informants, and organization records. Variables offer basic factual information about the organizations and about the bases, complexity, formalization, and centralization of authority within each organization. Measures of routinization of roles and the structure of the administrative hierarchy were also obtained.
