Abstract
This study gathered occupational and economic information from two distinct groups of respondents in Guanabara, Brazil, from 1959-1962: one group from the urban area and the other from the slums. The respondent's occupation was examined in variables describing current job, amount of supervised rather than independent work, permanent or transitory nature of the job, income, and second occupation if applicable. Further variables ascertained the respondent's interest and involvement in his or her surroundings: membership in clubs and organizations, political party affiliation, and newspapers read. A major portion of the study explored the composition of the respondent's family and the kind of home in which he or she lived.
