The German Social Survey (ALLBUS) monitors social trends in the Federal Republic of Germany. Education and cultural skills (Bildung und kulturelle Fertigkeiten), and social networks and social support (Soziale Beziehungen und Hilfeleistungen) were the special topics of investigation in 1986. Basic demographic and socioeconomic variables (ZUMA-Standarddemographie) were also collected.
This data collection has been deaccessioned; it is no longer distributed by ICPSR. The data are currently available at German Social Survey (ALLBUS), 1986.
