    Michal Bleich Newbie

      Where can I please find USIA attitude surveys which were conducted during 1955-1965 in the Soviet Union?

          Dear Mr. Bleich,


          Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!


          We searched the National Archives Catalog and located the series International Survey Research Reports, 1954-1964, the series Reports and Studies, 1953-1998, the series Special Reports, 1953-1997, and the series National Intelligence Surveys, 1953-1960 in the Records of the U.S. Information Agency (USIA) (Record Group 306) that all contain information related to the Soviet Union and that may be relevant to your research. These records have not been digitized. Please contact the National Archives at College Park - Textual Reference (RDT2) at archives2reference@nara.gov for assistance with these and similar records.


          We also located the series World Wide Public Opinion Poll Files, 1952-1999 in Record Group 306 that may be of interest to you. These records have not been digitized. For access to and information about these records, please contact the National Archives at College Park - Electronic Records (RDE) at cer@nara.gov.
