This study of 576 adults in the Detroit metropolitan area in 1973 measures their feelings about the military and the Vietnam War, as well as a variety of other issues. The study incorporates data from two sets of investigations: those collected by David Segal on opinions about the military and the Vietnam War, and those collected by Michael Flynn and James Jackson on the application of laboratory methodologies to a survey setting. Items explored respondents' opinions on the appropriateness of United States' involvement in the Vietnam War, the substitution of an all-volunteer army for the military draft, and the amount of money that should be spent on the military. Other items queried respondents about how a hypothetical sum of money should be spent and the criteria that guided their allocation of this money. Also measured were respondents' responses to photographs of people's faces and how they completed a story begun by the interviewer. Additional items explored respondents' attitudes toward a variety of other public and private issues, such as government's efforts to eliminate employment-based racial discrimination, United States' aid to North Vietnam, career success, and use of leisure time. Demographic variables specify age, sex, race, marital status, education, occupation, military service, rank in the army, religion, social class identification, political party affiliation, income, physical height, number of children, and length of residence in the Detroit area....
