dc.description.abstract The study included a survey of 14 personal identification items and 38 questions. The survey was given to 100 caseworkers who worked in county departments of public welfare in Indiana. Secondly, the survey was given to 90 directors of departments of public welfare in Indiana. Also 15 budget items for the years 1966 and 1971 were used.The survey was designed to give some indication of the social values and attitudes of the people involved in the study. There was no attempt made to find cause-effect relationships.The data was analyzed by use of Statistical Package for the Social Sciences which was a group of computer programs.The budget data was correlated with the director survey. Individual analysis was performed on the caseworker and director survey. The caseworker findings were mixed; some relationships were found on the director survey; the more liberal the director, the higher the tax rate in the county.
