Abstract: Considerable interest has recently been generated about the impact of the Federal Government on American family life. This exploratory study was designed to examine the perceptions of Federal-level bureaucrats on a variety of family-oriented concerns. The purpose of the research was twofold: first, to assess the bureaucratic climate at the Federal level as to the circumstances confronting contemporary American family life, family representation in governmental deliberations, the generation of supportive national family policy, and the establishment of a Federal agency or structure devoted specifically to the concerns of families; and second, to provide a substantive information base to assist those professionals in family-oriented fields develop effective political and governmental support in launching family advocacy programs.
