Principal Investigator(s): International Social Survey Program (ISSP)
This collection, the fourth module in the ISSP series, contains data from Austria, the Federal Republic of Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Great Britain, and the United States. Questions asked of respondents focused on the family and changing sex roles. Respondents were asked for their views on women working outside the home (especially working mothers), childcare arrangements and child rearing practices, marriage, family structure and composition, and divorce. Demographic data on respondents, such as age, sex, race, ethnic identity, employment, income, marital status, education, religion, political affiliation, voting behavior, trade union membership, and household size, also were recorded. Information gathered about each person in the household includes sex, age, and relationship to the respondent.
This data collection has been deaccessioned; it is no longer distributed by ICPSR. The data are currently available at International Social Science Program: Family and Changing Sex Roles, 1988.
