Summary

Project materials, including reports, monographs, books, articles, Masters essays, Doctoral dissertations, foreign publications, administrative records, correspondence, minutes and audio-visual materials.

  • Series I: Project Index

    Boxes 1-103.& This Index is intended to show the entire output of each Bureau project. The projects were assigned numbers that were generally chronological, beginning with the year the project began, but became chronologically disordered from B-1000 to B-1038 due to a transition in the numbering system introduced in 1964. For these projects, the year of initiation is given after the project title.

    Within projects, publications are listed by type: Reports, Monographs, Books, Articles, Masters Essays, Doctoral Dissertations, Foreign Publications and, in a few cases, Audio-Visual Materials. Within each category, publications are ordered by year and then alphabetically by author. If an author produced more than one publication of a given type in a particular year, a number in parentheses indicates its order in that author's publications for that year.

    Projects that were funded through the Bureau and approved by its Board as "Bureau Projects" have numbers preceded by "B." Faculty projects, for which the Bureau provided space or services but that it did not initiate as an organization, are indicated by an "F." Similar student projects are indicated by "S" or "D." The names of the original project directors are given in parentheses after the project title.

  • Series II: Project Proposals

    Eight boxes of material [Boxes 104-111]

History / Biographical Note

Biographical / Historical

The Bureau of Applied Social Research, headed by sociologist Paul Lazarsfeld, was established in 1944 and helped make Columbia a pioneering institution in the social sciences. Through empirical research, ideas regarding the functioning of individuals and groups were developed and tested. Many ground-breaking studies were conducted by Lazarsfeld and his colleagues, among the most important of which was the impact of radio and television on the American public. Through such work, the Bureau become the "birthplace" of mass communication research. Many survey techniques were developed at the Bureau, such as the focused interview and panel interviewing methods. The Bureau was eventually succeeded by the Center for the Social Sciences in 1976.

[B-0361-1 This report discusses an index of public opinion leadership (a method of identifying opinion leaders), the distribution of opinion leaders within the Norwegian population and the degree to which opinion leaders influence others. B-0361-2 Analyzing data from a survey of 2207 people in Sweden, this report discusses an index of opinion leadership, the distribution of opinion leaders within the Swedish population and factors influencing the likelihood of being an opinion leader. B-0361-3 Since the proportion of population listening to VOA broadcasts is small, this report discusses the use of the snowball technique in locating a larger portion of the potential VOA audience. (The snowball technique is a research method in which respondents are asked to list other people they feel would make a relevant contribution to the study. These people are then interviewed by the researchers and the cycle is repeated.). B-0361-4 This report points out problems arising from conducting international broadcasting surveys involving the use of questionnaires and suggests how these problems may be handled. B-0361-5 This report offers an example of a practical solution to some of the problems raised in B-0361-4. It analyzes aspects of the VOA's Norwegian audience, based on a sample of 557 VOA listeners and 798 other listeners to U. S. radio broadcasts in 1950. B-0361-6 This paper discusses problems encountered by analysts of the study, Competitive Broadcasting to Germany, which was a study of the content of radio programs broadcast to Germany by VOA, BBC and Radio Moscow in 1948-49. Specifically considered are how the analysts dealt with problems regarding classification of content of programs, presentation of data obtained and interpretation of data. B-0361-7 This report deals with the results of a test of VOA programs in Sweden, Germany, Austria, Italy and France. In each country five specific programs were tested on listener panels. The panel members filled out questionnaires before and after the listening sessions to test their reactions to the programs. B-0361-8 This is an analysis of organized group radio listening and the structure of French radio at the end of 1949. Also includes a statement outlining a long-range program of international communications research and the kinds of problems which would be met whenever it was undertaken. B-0361-9 Using data obtained in studies conducted in France, Austria and Finland, this experiment was to provide information leading to 1) the ability to arrive at a single estimate of the size of the VOA audience in each country, 2) the use of a minimal number of questions to provide such an absolute figure and 3) the possibility of designing a scale of intensity of listening to the VOA.

B-0555-2 An " investigation of the extent to which the car-buyer's personal associates influence his choice of automobile...in respect to price class, corporate line and newness of car." B-0555-3 single-car owners were studied for patterns of automobile replacement, the prevalence of the short replacement pattern, variety of replacement cycles, social factors involved. B-0555-4 This report examines factors associated with the seasonal timing element in the new-car-buying decision. B-0555-5 Two-car families were studied for the type of car that they buy, "paying particular heed to model-age, price-class, and brand and line loyalty." B-0555-6 This discusses behavioral and attitudinal indicators of expected change in socioeconomic status which appeared in questionnaires administered to car owners in Peoria, Illinois, and San Bernardino, California. B-0555-7 Assuming that "consumer goods are prestigeful to the extent that ownership and use of them enhances the prestige of their owners and users," this secondary analysis of data attempts to specify the criteria of general prestige.

B-0555-16 This report develops further the analysis of B-0555-1 with particular emphasis on the finding that " a social image of the brand that is incompatible with the owner's background characteristics is related to an increased disposition to switch brands." B-0555-17 This paper is concerned with the popular occupational image of automobile makes and the factors contributing to producing a favorable image. Also examined is how this occupational image affects the buying intentions of individuals. Reports: B-0555-1 through B-0555-17 Masters Essay: Smith 1958, Falaguerra 1960]
