Version V1

This study presents a subset of questions from the SURVEY OF CONSUMER ATTITUDES AND BEHAVIOR, SPRING 1962 (ICPSR 3637) focusing on American opinions of and attitudes toward West Germany. Respondents were asked open-ended questions relating to their impressions of West Germany, if and why their attitudes had changed over the past several years, how dependable an ally West Germany was, and what their positions were on a divided Germany and the Berlin issue. Other questions elicited extensive information on socioeconomic characteristics and probed attitudes toward the economy and buying foreign goods. Demographic data include sex, age, race, marital status, income, religion, occupation, and party identification.
