Statistically significant residential differences were found with respect to attitudes toward family size, birth control, and familism, with urban subjects being less traditionally oriented than rural subjects. Statisitically significant attitudinal differences due to residential background were found in the female segment of the sample with regard to interfaith marriage, family size, birth control, and the importance of religious education. Urban females were less traditionally oriented than rural females. Statistically significant sex differences were noted in attitudes toward the double standard and religious education.
