In 1991, German and Hoffman undertook a statewide study of public opinion of the environment and the effectiveness of governmental actions to protect the environment. They wanted to determine the public's satisfaction with the environmental conditions of the time and what type of actions would be supported in order to improve the environment. The information, collected from 488 people across 88 out of the 100 North Carolina counties, was collected through a random digit telephone survey. The survey was completed in late 1991 and the results published in the Spring 1992 edition of "Popular Government” (Vol. 57, No. 4).
