Dataset: International Social Survey Programme: Social Inequality IV - ISSP 2009

Abstract

Social inequality.

Themes:
Importance of social background, merit, discrimination, corruption and good relations as prerequisites for success in society (wealthy family, well-educated parents, good education, ambitions, hard working, knowing the right people, political connections, giving bribes, person´s race and religion, gender);
attitude towards equality of educational opportunity in one´s country (corruption as criteria for social mobility, only students from the best secondary schools have a good chance to obtain a university education, only rich people can afford the costs of attending university, same chances for everyone to enter university, regardless of gender, ethnicity or social background);
opinion about own salary: actual occupational earning is adequate;
estimation of actual and reasonable earnings for occupational groups: doctor, chairman of a large national corporation, shop assistant, unskilled worker in a factory, cabinet minister in the national government;
income differences are too large in the respondent´s country;
responsibility of government to reduce income differences;
government should provide a decent standard of living for the unemployed and spend less on benefits for poor people;
demand for higher taxes for people with high incomes;
opinion on taxes for people with high income;
justification of better medical supply and better education for people with higher income;
perception of class conflicts between social groups in the country (poor and rich people, working class and middle class, management and workers, people at the top of society and people at the bottom);
self-assessment and assessment of the family the respondent grew up in on a top-bottom-scale;
social position compared to father (social mobility);
salary criteria (scale: responsibility, education, needed support for family and children, quality of job performance or hard work at the job);
feeling of a just payment;
