This CATI survey is the third wave of longitudinal data collection for the NFSH. The comprehensive study of family life in the U.S. will interview a portion of the original sample and their young adult sons and daughters. Interviewers will administer the 45 to 60 minute instrument to up to 18,000 respondents from households first interviewed in 1987-8 and re-interviewed in 1992-4. Funding comes from the National Institute of Health.

This study is designed to validate environmental performance models/management systems and measure their performance. The UWSC will conduct telephone interviews with a total of 900 plastics and fabricated metals manufacturers throughout the United States to get a picture of how these manufacturers deal with environmental issues internally. Both small and large manufacturers will be interviewed. The results of this study will be used to establish ways for businesses to minimize their impact on the environment more efficiently.
