Appendix 1
The Interviewers' Questionnaire
The questionnaire prepared for the use of the individual interviewers is reproduced here with some abridgement -- omission not of the questions to be asked, but of some collateral instructions and items convenient for the interviewer and coder but not so important to the reader. As was explained in the Introduction, these questions were asked orally in individual interviews by trained interviewers, who recorded the responses as they got them.Questions 1-31 (Asked of all except as noted)
1. How many of you are there living here -- just your immediate family?
2. Who is the main breadwinner?
3. (Record date of interview, address, etc.)
4. Have you noticed the high cost of living much? (Record the time.)
5. What [else] would you like to buy, or to do, if you had more money? (Probe: What else?)
6. What [else] is your family working toward for the future? (Probe vague answers.)
7. Right now, what do you personally really want most?
8. How many rooms do you have here for your own family to use?
9. How about bath rooms?
10. That's ----- rooms for the ----- of you? (Find out how many rooms for immediate family's use.)
11. Do you rent or own your home here? (It own)
a. Are you still buying it, or is it paid for?
b. Financially, has buying your home been a good investment, or a bad investment?
c. In other ways, do you think owning your home has been a good thing, or a bad thing, for your family?
d. How has it been (good, bad) for your family?
