Interviews were taken with a national sample of 2460 adults. The questionnaire focused on various areas of life in which problems may be felt - including marriage and parenthood, the work situation and general social relationships. Information was sought about the respondents' use of leisure time, including group memberships and time spent with friends and realtives. Respondents were asked what things worried them and how they dealt with these worries. They were asked also to assess present happiness, the happiest time of their lives, and how they faced periods of unhappiness. Additional questions probed reactions to normal conflict situations such as failure to do well or anger at someone close. Respondents' self-perceptions were explored.
