The International Social Survey Program (ISSP) is an ongoing program of cross-national collaboration. Formed in 1983, the ISSP group develops topical modules dealing with important areas of social science as supplements to regular national surveys. This data collection is the third survey exploring the topic of family and changing gender roles.

Demographic variables include sex, age, ethnicity or nationality, marital status, level of education, current employment status, family income, number of people living in household, household composition, religious denomination, trade union membership, political party affiliation, and region of the country and size of community where currently residing.
