Survey of Consumer Finances, 1964 (ICPSR 7444) RSS

Principal Investigator(s):

Summary:

This data collection is one in a series of financial surveys of consumers conducted annually since 1946. In a nationally representative sample, the head of each family unit was interviewed. The 1964 data are based on the family unit. The questions in the 1964 survey covered the respondent's attitudes toward national economic conditions and price activity, as well as the respondent's own financial situation. Other questions examined the family unit head's occupation, and the nature and amount of the family's income, debts, liquid assets, changes in liquid assets, savings, investment preferences, and actual and expected purchases of cars and other major durables. In addition, the survey explored in detail the subject of housing, e.g., previous and present home ownership, value of respondent's dwelling, and mortgage information. The survey also gathered detailed information on savings, assets, and stock ownership. Personal data include age and education of head, household composition, and occupation.
