This project had three purposes: (a) survey public attitudes toward a proposed system of national disposal sites (NDS), (b) develop a behavioral model as a means of predicting citizens' reactions to an NDS in a particular location, and (c) propose an effective public information compaign. The national survey, sampling randomly and purposefully selected respondents (key influentials), was conducted in 10 counties that were selected as feasible NDS locations. The questionnaire elicited information about three classes of variables considered predictive of citizen reaction to an NDS. These variables, (a) contextural variables (physical/economic environment), (b) situational variables (Social environment), and (c) individual variables (personal attitudes/beliefs), constituted the basic structure of the behavioral model. A generalized public information program designed to create public acceptance of NDSs is outlined. (Modified author abstract) Portions of this document are not fully legible.
