Abstract: Of the fourteen nations reported in Hadley Cantril, The Pattern of Human Concerns, the Consortium has data for the following ten: Brazil: 1,142 respondents weighted to 2,740, 3 cards of data per respondent, and 71 variables. The data were collected from late 1960 through early 1961. Cuba: 992 respondents weighted to 1,490, 3 cards of data per respondent, and 33 variables. The data were collected in April and May 1960. The sample represents only urban areas. Dominican Republic: 814 respondents weighted to 2,442, 3 cards of data per respondent, and 84 variables. The data were collected in April 1962. India I: 2,366 respondents weighted to 5,720, 3 cards of data per respondent, and 59 variables. The data were collected in late summer 1962. The sample under represents females. India II: 2,014 respondents weighted to 4,993, 3 cards of data per respondent, and 59 variables. The data were collected in January 1963 (after border fighting with China). The sample under-represents females. Israel I: 1,170 respondents, 3 cards of data per respondent, and 41 variables. The data were collected from November 1961, through June 1962. Israel II: Kibbutzim, 3 respondents, 3 cards of data per respondent, and 41 variables. The data were collected from July through October 1962. Nigeria: 1,200 respondents weighted to 2,876, 4 cards of data per respondent, and 72 variables. The data were collected from September through November 1962, and in spring of 1963. Panama: 642 respondents weighted to 1,351, 3 cards of data per respondent, and 84 variables. The data were collected early in January and March 1962. United States: 1,549 respondents weighted to 2,696, 4 cards of data per respondent, and 106 variables. The data were collected in August 1959. West Germany: 480 respondents, 2 cards of data per respondent, and 58 variables. The data were collected in September, 1957. Yugoslavia: 1,524 respondents, 2 cards of data per respondent, and 31 variables. The data were collected in spring 1962. The data for Egypt, Japan, The Philippines, and Poland are not available through the Consortium. Besides ascertaining the usual personal and demographic information, Cantril tried through his ''Self-Anchoring Striving Scale,'' an open-ended scale asking the respondent to define hopes and fears for self and the nation, to discover the two extremes of a self-defined spectrum on each of several variables. After getting these subjective ratings from respondents, Cantril had the respondents indicate their perception of where they and their nation stood on a hypothetical ladder at three different points in time. For information on the samples, coding, and the means of measurement, see The Pattern of Human Concerns.
