This study analyzes the attitudes, opinions, experiences, and characteristics of highway relocatees displaced under the 1968 and 1970 Relocation Programs. Four classifications are used in a comparative analysis as follows: (1) type of relocatee (residential versus business or institutional), (2) type of relocation program (1968 versus 1970), (3) population of urban location, and (4) ethnic background. The sample consists of 444 relocatees. Of these, 76 percent were residential; 70 percent relocated under the 1970 Program; 60 percent lived in urban areas over 100,000 population; and 75 percent were Anglos. The findings indicate that the opinions and attitudes of residential relocatees were more favorable than those of business or institutional relocatees. The classification by type of program indicates that both the 1968 and 1970 programs produced similar attiudes toward the two relocation programs and toward the relocation experience. The classifications according to population of urban location and race reveal few significant differences in relocatee characteristics, experiences, opinions, and attitudes.
