    The original papers for this study will be found at the Mass-Observation Archive, University of Sussex, TC 47/13/A-K, 47/14/A-E. The survey was replicated in 1960. A brief reference to this fact was made by Tom Harrisson, Britain Revisited, London: Victor Gollancz, 1961, p. 258, but the raw material for this later survey is not in the Mass-Observation Archive
