This collection consists of three separate surveys undertaken to assess the extent of sexual harassment within the federal government. The records in each file contain responses to a mail survey on sexual harassment in the federal workplace from a disproportionately stratified sample. Each record contains reactions to a series of statements about the respondent's workplace, such as "I feel free to bring up general work-related concerns or suggestions to my immediate supervisor." Other data gathered include attitudes regarding sexual behavior that can happen at work, how the respondent defined sexual harassment, opinions on remedies that could reduce sexual harassment, descriptions of and actions taken in response to specific incidents of sexual harassment, and information about whether the respondent had been accused of sexually harassing others. Additional information includes respondent's work schedule, working hours, number of coworkers, number of supervisors, and gender of supervisors. Demographic variables include race, age, marital status, sex, and level of education.
