This study consists of three surveys. Parts 1 and 2 are concerned primarily with attitudes towards the United States government, indicators of patriotism, and respondents' tolerance of civil liberties in hypothetical situations. In addition, respondents were asked their opinions on a variety of domestic economic and foreign policy issues. The third survey explored attitudes of American women towards traditional sex role models, attitudes toward women in the work force, and experiences of respondents in the work force in terms of salary, responsibility, and promotion. Other items included evaluation of Reagan's performance in office as well as questions about domestic and foreign policy issues. Demographic data were collected for all three surveys.
