Abstract: This series contains four surveys: survey of law enforcement officers' attitudes toward the enforcement of gambling laws, 1975; national survey of the law enforcement agencies, 1976; national survey of gambling attitudes and behavior, 1975 and survey of gambling attitudes and behavior in Nevada, 1975. The survey of the law enforcement agencies, 1976 has a sample of police chiefs from large city and state police departments and includes information on enforcement of gambling laws, illegal gambling, and information about the respondent and the department. The 1975 survey of law enforcement officers contains the same information for a sample of delegates to a 1975 Fraternal Order of Police conference. Information collected from the 1975 national survey of gambling attitudes and behavior includes demographic data on gambling activities and expenditures, leisure and recreation habits, and attitudes about problem gamblers and legalized gambling. The Nevada survey includes the same information about attitudes and behavior on gambling.
