Abstract : The report focuses on the responses made by a state-wide probability sample of Michigan residents to questions dealing with their willingness to share their home basements--in the event of natural disaster, or nuclear attack, with either friends, neighbors, or strangers. Subgroups of the population were studied in response to these questions; a wide variety of subgroups were examined along differing levels of civil defense attitudes and information, communications with respect to civil defense, and demographic factors. The findings were then compared with similar questions asked in other mid-west urban and rural areas, and in a nation-wide probability sample; all three sets of results consistently showed high levels of public support for homesharing in the event of nuclear attack.
