This survey was undertaken to assess consumer sentiment and buying plans. Open-ended questions were asked concerning evaluations and expectations about personal finances, employment, recession, price changes, and the national business situation. Variables probe respondents' buying intentions for a house, automobiles, appliances, and other consumer durables, and the respondents' appraisals of present market conditions for purchasing houses and other durables. Additional variables probe respondents' opinions of small foreign cars as compared to small American cars, air pollution, gasoline prices, government spending, especially welfare payments, tax increases, income tax filing and returns, their spending plans for income tax refunds, taxes owed, and respondents' financial status relative to the previous year. Information is also provided on respondents' car ownership and the make and use of it. Demographic variables provide information on respondents' age, sex, race, marital status, education, employment status, occupation, and family income.
