This study contains data from interviews with members of the United States Arms Control and Disarmame nt Agency (ACDA) on their attitudes towards arms deployment and arms control by the United States, as well as biographical and professional background information. Respondents were asked questions about their commitment to and intellectual interest in arms control, the importance of arms control as a foreign policy issue, basic orientation to arms control, and the effects of their job position on their attitude towards arms control. Also elicited were respondents' perceptions of the influence of the ACDA, Department of State, Defense, Joint Chiefs of Staff, and other influences over policy. Respondents were queried about their reaction to the Strategic Arms Limitation Treaty (SALT) I agreement, their preference for SALT II, the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty, and expenditures for strategic nuclear weapons. Demographic variables include age, education, and job rank. In addition, biographical information is provided for other members of the ACDA who were not interviewed.
