Version V2

This study was conducted in Bogota, Colombia, in 1962. The respondents' backgrounds were described through variables ascertaining birthplace, number of years of residence in Bogota, and occupation in their land of origin. The major portion of the study explored attitudes toward political violence: its effects on people's confidence in the government, the position of the church, groups who had benefited from political violence, and the extent to which violence had spread into areas of life other than politics. Derived measures include national identification and security scales and a scale showing attitudes toward the church. Demographic variables provide information about the respondents' age, education, marital status, and number of children.
