By ROBERT JUNKER
Organized research develops be-
cause research skills become highly
specialized according to Prof. An-
gus Campbell, Director of the Sur-
vey Research Center.
And it is more ecohomical to
have each scholar do what he
knows best than to have him try
to carry out the whole research
process himself, he added.
Prof. Campbell, head of the
largest social science research cen-
ter in any American university, ex-
plained that "large scale social
surveys require - samplers, inter-
viewers, IBM operators, coders,
statisticians, as well as specialists
in various fields of knowledge. The
only way such studies can be done
is by bringing these various skills
together in an organization."
Survey Research Center was
established at the University in
1946. Previously operating within
the Department of Agriculture, it
was founded in 1939 to obtain
farmer opinion on the federal
agriculture programs.
Became Director in 1948
Prof. Campbell served as assist-
ant director of the Center until
1948 when he became director. The
Center is one of the divisions of
the Institute for Social Research,
the other being the Research Cen-
ter for Group Dynamics.
In the past Survey Research has
'studied consumer attitudes toward
prices, factors influencing effec-
tive organization and public atti-
tudes= toward United State's for-
eign policy.
1 Recently it has undertaken a
study of the Village Aid program
in Pakistan and will attempt to
deteremine the effectiveness of the
program in which agricultural
agents attempt to teach new farm-
ing methods to village farmers.
The Center's interests are na-
tional, not international, Prof.
Campbell emphasized. Being self-
supporting it receives financing

from meeting their class at this hour.

from foundations, private business
and government to conduct its
studies.
Use 'Micro-Analysis' Technique
The technique in use today at
the center is "Micro-Analysis"
meaning individual rather than
group data is compiled, Prof.
Campbell explained. Interviews
across the country use small but
widespread samples of population.
The samples are chosen from
population lists compiled by the
Center. About 75 counties are
selected being distributed between
urban and rural areas. These
areas are then broken down into
segments and individuals selected
at random, with each individual
being given an equal chance to be
chosen.
This procedure, called multi-

stage probability sampling, is the
most advanced procedure today,
the director explained. Through its
use the opinions of the national
population can be obtained from
a 2000 person sample with an
error of not more than three per
cent..
Current studies being carried on
by the Center include a national
study on mental illness and health
and an analysis of the 1956 presi-
dential elections.
Survey Research has been carry-
ing out a program of study of poli-
tical behavior -- how people vote,
their political attitudes and the
like - since 1946.
