Abstract: In addition to the standard personal characteristic items, the survey covers items viewed by the NORC staff and an advisory panel of sociologists as ''mainstream'' interests of modern academic sociology. The interview covers the areas of stratification, the family, race relations, social control, civil liberties, and morale. A major objective of the project was the replication of questions which have appeared in previous national surveys. The data were collected by the National Opinion Research Center as the first in a five year series of general social surveys. The survey was administered in February-April 1972 to a national cross-section sample of adults 18 years of age and older. The data were obtained from the Roper Center for Public Opinion Research.
