The article is an introduction to the subsequent articles devoted to the investigations mentioned in the title. The investigations have not yet been terminated, and the ensuing conclusions are preliminary. The purpose of the investigations was to try out various types of verificational analyses referred to in the preceding article. The analyses concerned the investigations conducted specially for that purpose, with the use of short questionnaire interviews with young workers. Four types of analyses were performed: 1. external analysis using the files data (11 questions); 2. external analysis using an in-depth verification interview of a quality check-type; 3. internal analysis with the use of the interviews about the interviews based on the models describing the processes, and internal reactions of respondents to every, question (7 question); 4 psychological tests. Verification interviews were conducted in case an answer to a questionnaire question did not bring the information desired, or in case an interview about an interview showed that the process of the answer formation was inappropriate. The greatest importance was attached to the internal verification. Materials were gathered by sociology students subjected to 10 days intensive training; they were strictly supervised in their work by research workers who were elaborating later the data collected. The coding of the tape-recorded data was done by research workers. The articles presented contain the analytical description and evaluation of various methods used in the investigations. The main results show that, from among 7 questions subjected to verification, only one question turned out to be appropriate, as evidenced by 90% of correct answers; the remaining questions led to a considerable number of errors; in case of two questions the errors and information lacunae appeared in 70% of the answers. The verification procedures turned out to be efficient; their efficiency being evidenced by the fact that the results of independently applied tests correlated closely with those obtained by the verification.
