This study, conducted by the National Opinion Research Center, surveyed a cross-section of the adult population in the United States to elicit opinions about the involvement of the United States in Vietnam. Questions covered problems in the news, the respondents' vote in 1964, the number of years, if any, served in the Armed Forces, their knowledge of the Vietnam War, and their opinions on what the government should do in Vietnam. Demographic data include age, sex, race, number of children, education, occupation, family income, perceived social class, service in the military, and religious preference.
