As part of the Housing Assistance Supply Experiment, the baseline survey of neighborhoods was conducted in Brown County, Wisconsin (Site I of the experiment) between November 1973 and April 1974. The codebook exactly reproduces each question in the two survey instruments used — one for local sources (the NLS) and another for street observations (the NSOB) — and specified every permissible response. Each question is accompanied by a tabulation of all responses recorded in the preliminary master file, which contains 108 records for the NLS and 8,084 for the NSOB.
