Abstract:

An investigation was conducted into the extent and composition of support for the Civil Defense program from World War II to 1963. The report is one of a series of papers based on data from a University of Pittsburgh national study entitled The Cold War and Civil Defense Attitudes, conducted during the year 1963 with a sample of 1,434. The focus was a set of three questions about Civil Defense activity 1 Had the respondent or any member of his family ever been active in Civil Defense. 2 When. and 3 What did they do. Responses to these questions were run against relevant personal data in order to attempt to determine the number and composition of the group which had been active. It became immediately apparent that 14.6 percent of our respondents, or 196 people, had been active in Civil Defense at any time, and further that the majority of these people had been active during the Second World War and had participated most often in terms of carrying out assigned roles. The group seen as active at the time of interview is analyzed singly, in terms of the personal data. Author
