Dataset: International Social Survey Programme: Role of Government I-IV ADD ON - ISSP 1985-1990-1996-2006

Abstract

The release of the cumulated ISSP "Role of Government" modules for the years 1985, 1990, 1996 and 2006 consists of two separate datasets: ZA4747 and ZA4748.

This documentation deals with the supplementary dataset ZA4748. It contains all those, mainly national-specific background variables that belong to the current ISSP standard, but could not be cumulated for various reasons. The variables, however, can be matched easily to the cumulated file if necessary. A comprehensive overview on the contents, the structure and basic coding rules of both data files can be found in the following guide:
