Center for Research on Social Reality [Spain] Survey, March 1996: Savings, Family, and Aging (ICPSR 6973)
Principal Investigator(s): Centro de Investigaciones Sobre la Realidad Social (CIRES)
This data collection is part of a series of nationwide surveys conducted from October 1990 to June 1996 in Spain. The questionnaires for each of these surveys consisted of three sections. The first section collected information on respondents' attitudes regarding personal, national, and international issues, and included questions on respondents' level of life satisfaction and frequency of visits with relatives, neighbors, and friends. The second section contained a topical module of questions that varied from survey to survey, with this month's module focusing on the family, savings, and aging. Among the topics investigated were household composition, employment status of household members, sources of household income, family saving capacity, attitudes toward saving, preferred investment options for savings, and attitudes regarding old age and the elderly. This section also gathered information on expected age of retirement, expected amount of retirement income, and the living arrangements, retirement status, and sources of income of the elderly. Questions in the third section of the questionnaire elicited socioeconomic information, such as respondent's sex, age, marital status, size of household, occupation, education, religion, religiosity, place of birth, and income.
