A random sample of 250 householders in 4 western communities were surveyed on their attitudes toward social work. Responses were analyzed according to the respondents’ sex, occupation, and prior acquaintance with a social worker. The results were more positive than in earlier studies, from which the authors infer that the general public has a greater awareness of social work roles now than in the 1950s.
