Comment:
In 2000 and 2004, this question was part of the ISSP-modules surveyed together with ALLBUS. As a rule ISSP-questions are not included in this cumulative data set. However, because the question documented here has also been part of the ALLBUS-interview several times, the ISSP-data was included in this data set. Please note that, in contrast to the ALLBUS interview, the ISSP-modules are surveyed as self-completion questionnaires.
