Abstract: In this survey, respondents were asked about satisfaction with their neighborhoods, police relations, racial discrimination, and perceptions of the 1967 riot and its consequences. In addition, the questionnaire measured feelings of political efficacy, political involvement, evaluations of various political personalities and social programs, and the respondent's personal values and aspirations. Information was obtained from 847 respondents, 19 cards of data per respondent, 421 variables. The data were collected during the Fall of 1967 from a probability sample of the Detroit Metropolitan area. The total N includes a supplement of 316 respondents from the areas where rioting took place in July, 1967.
