Abstract: Three of the four decks are questions to students aimed at comparing their attitudes toward political power and social change with those of their parents. The questions focus on contemporary mores, the work ethic, the issues of civil rights and poverty, conformity, drug laws, compromise vs. militancy, trust in government, the impact of specific recent events, and relations with parents. Some of the questions were of the agree/disagree variety, meaning that researchers should be on guard for acquiescence response bias. There were also the usual demographic variables of age, sex, education, income category, party preference, and class identification. The fourth deck contains the results of administering another form of the survey to parents of the students; it contained demographic variables and repeated some of the questions asked of the students. Some of the questions of this survey were identical with those of the Fortune-Yankelovich Survey, October, 1968 (DPLS data set 13-024), which purportedly is a national sample of American Youth.
