International Social Survey Program: Family and Changing Gender Roles II, 1994 (ICPSR 6914)

Principal Investigator(s):

Summary:

The International Social Survey Program (ISSP) is an ongoing program of crossnational collaboration. Formed in 1983, the group develops topical modules dealing with important areas of social science as supplements to regular national surveys. This collection, the second module on family and changing gender roles (see INTERNATIONAL SOCIAL SURVEY PROGRAM: FAMILY AND CHANGING SEX ROLES, 1988 [ICPSR 9591]), contains data from Australia, Austria, Bulgaria, Canada, the Czech Republic, Germany (East and West), Great Britain, Hungary, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Northern Ireland, Norway, the Philippines, Poland, Russia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, and the United States. Respondents were asked to comment on various topics regarding the family and changing gender roles, such as working parents, division of housework, management of household income, sexual advances in the workplace, and relationships with spouse or other partner(s). Demographic variables include respondents' sex, age, education, marital status, personal and family income, employment status, household size and composition, and occupation.

    All frequencies in the codebook are calculated from unweighted data.
    Some code values may have country-specific meanings, which have been documented in the codebook.
