This data collection contains data from three multithematic inquiries into changes occurring within society in the Federal Republic of Germany. Each of the surveys dealt with a variety of social and political topics, including attitudes toward and personal importance placed on work, family and children, and religion, self-described social status, sense of receiving one's "just share" from society, attitudes toward governmental priorities, desired levels of social and defense spending, and attitudes toward the political parties.
This data collection has been deaccessioned; it is no longer distributed by ICPSR.
