Version V1

This survey was undertaken to assess consumer sentiment and buying plans. Open-ended questions were asked concerning evaluations and expectations about personal finances, employment, recession, price changes, and the national business situation. Additional variables probe respondents' buying intentions for a house, automobiles, appliances, and other consumer durables, and the respondents' appraisals of present market conditions for purchasing houses and other durables. Other variables probe respondents' opinions of government, government price controls, government spending, bureaucrats, income tax filing and returns, and the relative merits of new and old small cars, as well as their financial status relative to the previous year. Information is also provided on respondents' choice of presidential candidate in the 1972 election, stock ownership and other forms of investment, car ownership and the cost, make and use of it, their spending plans for their income tax refunds, and savings. Demographic variables provide information on respondents' age, sex, race, ethnicity, marital status, education, occupation, employment status, and family income.

One respondent from each family unit in the dwellings sampled, usually the head of the family, or the wife. The dwelling units were selected by area probability sampling from 74 primary sampling units. For each dwelling unit in the sample, an interview was sought with a respondent from the primary family and from each secondary family (if any). The head of the family (usually the husband) was the preferred respondent, but the wife could substitute if the head was not readily available.

All families living in continental United States dwelling units, exclusive of those on military reservations.
