This study suveyed city council members from 82 cities in the San Francisco Bay area and collected census, budget, and aggregate election data from the council members' cities. The study explored the council members' opinions on matters that concerned Bay Area cities and communities such as traffic and highways, recreation, job and housing discrimination, and social and governmental problems. Predictions of future problems as well as remedies for present ones were elicited. Also investigated were respondents' opinions of the job of council member and details of the history of each council member's political activity and career in public life. Questions were asked about specific campaigns and election outcomes. A number of variables deal with groups and organizations in the area and the characteristics of the council members' cities.
