For the promotion of socio-economic programs for relief clients which will be of mutual benefit to the individuals and to society it is necessary to determine the actual attitudes of those individuals toward socio-economic problems. The verbal statements of attitudes toward social, economic and personal problems of relief children of relief parents are inconsistent with and non-indicative of their actual attitudes as revealed by their clinical case studies. The purpose of this study is to discover whether or not such radical differences between verbal and actual attitudes do appear and with sufficient frequency to prevent uncritically the acceptance of verbal statements or attitudes. This particularly applies to questionnaires regarding vocations and unemployment.
