Abstract: This is the second in a series of Omnibus surveys specifically designed for investigators who want to collect data on a national sample, but who require only a part of an interview. The 1973 fall Omnibus includes questions on the following topics: 1) respondent's and country's economic condition, 2) attitudes toward the political system, 3) beliefs and attitudes about selected institutions, 4) philanthropic contributions, and 5) background questions. The first section is part of the ongoing series of surveys of consumer attitudes that is conducted by the Economic Behavior Program. The second section asks questions of a political nature and concentrates on items such as trust in government and the evaluation of major political institutions. The third section focuses on the respondent's attitudes toward selected institutions, including big business, government, and labor. The fourth section measures general attitudes toward philanthropy and the effects of the growth of public philanthropy on private giving. Approximately 2,000 respondents are included in this survey.
