Reiss, Ira L. National Opinion Research Center, Amalgam Survey, SRS 160 (1963)
"The National Opinion Research Center, in June l963, carried out their Amalgam Survey, SRS 160, and my questions on sexual attitudes were part of that survey. A full analysis of these data can be found in my book The Social Context of Premarital Sexual Permissiveness (Holt, Rinehart, and Winston, Inc., 1967). An analysis of the further testing of my 'Autonomy Theory of Premarital Sexual Permissiveness' and of the 'Reiss Premarital Sexual Permissiveness Scales' can be found in Contemporary Theories About the Family (Edited by Wesley R. Burr, Reuben Hill, F. Ivan Nye and Ira L. Reiss, Free Press, 1979), in Volume One, Chapter 4, pp. 57-100, 'Heterosexual Permissiveness: A Theoretical Analysis' by Ira L. Reiss and Brent C. Miller.
The 'five item' universal scale was used in most of my analyses.
