Do Research
On Housing
Sponsored by the city housing
commission, a research survey is
being conducted by Psychology
185 students to sample local opin-
ion on the housing situation and
problem areas in Ann Arbor.
Results of the survey will be an-
nounced at the end of the semes-
INTERVIEWING, under the su-
pervision of Prof. Elizabeth M.
Douvan, study director of the Sur-
vey Research Center, began last
week and will continue through
next Friday.
Among the questions asked
students and residents is, "What
do you think of the Ann Arbor
housing situation?" The ques-
tionnaire goes on with inquiries
of education, income and fam-
ily background.
Approximately 50 volunteers, in-
cluding townspeople and some
students, are taking a random
sample of the entire city. Every
30th household receives an ex-
planatory letter before the inter-
viewer arrives for the question
NONE OF THE pollsters have
advance information on income
or any facts concerning the fami-
lies to be interviewed.
Students in the course, "Intro-
duction to Survey Research," use
methods applying to both psychol-
ogy and sociology.
According, to Prof. Douvan,
letters have been mailed to 400
addresses and the response has
been good thus far. She urges
citizens of Ann Arbor and Ui-
versity students to cooperate in
this research survey to get an
accurate random sample of the
Interviewers are trained and
sample questions drawn up before
the actual interviews. The ques-
tion period is followed by a coding'
process in class and re-interviews
are taken care of before a definite
conclusion is reached.
The 11 member class feels that
taking the survey helps them gain
experience in "learning by doing,"
according to Gretchen Ross, '54.
