          In December '96, SI for Kids completed its eighth year     sponsoring an omnibus survey among children.  Research is     conducted four times a year on a quarterly basis and reports     are issued two times a year.  Over the next month THE DAILY     will feature information taken from the August/December '96     study.  The total combined sample consists of 615 children,     including 313 boys and 302 girls.
