In each of the central areas, investigators were interested in determining whether the 1957 descriptive findings remained stable or had changed by 1976, and whether relationships established between sex, age, education, well-being, role experience, problems, and methods of dealing with stress were replicated or altered in the 1976 results. This is not a panel study. There are 4,724 cases and 262 variables.
