Abstract: The survey was designed to test the following hypotheses: (1) Differences in the life styles of the inhabitants of urban centers are associated with different patterns of alienation and participation. (2) An individual's perceptions of his social environment will be an intervening mechanism linking life style with patterns of behavior and belief. (Thus a person's world view, his sense of efficacy, and his view of the city will serve as an intervening mechanism.) (3) The existence of certain social and political structures in a person's neighborhood will be associated with rates of alienation and participation independent of individual level effects. This was a preliminary survey for a later, more comprehensive one (which is unavailable as of April, 1972.)
