He was one of a number of young Germans whose education had been interrupted five years or more by the war. He was one, moreover, whose interests in education had been defined in large part by the war. His interests turned to the human side of social problems. By a series of coincidences, he became attached to the Darmstadt Community Survey, a social study of a bombed city paid for by the Americans and used to give research training to a small number of young Germans. Baumert was assigned to the family phase of the project, a subject that captured his imagination, even more than the youth phase of the project which was linked with the family phase. Two of the special reports published by the Darmstadt Community Survey were largely his work. Finding no demand for sociologists in the German universities then, Baumert became associated with a polling agency and later was one of the owners.
