His earliest publication in the Review was a study of the geographic mobility of prominent American Catholic laymen; a later article examined the social attitudes of Catholic high school seniors; a study of the legal grounds for divorce also appeared in the Review . Mihanovich wrote for a wide variety of publications: professional journals, newsweeklies such as America , family-oriented publications such as Family Digest , and church-related publications such as The Missionary Servant . His areas of later concern continued to be wide ranging, as evidenced by published studies of immigration, teenage criminals, law enforcement, and issues concerning science and technology.
