The German Social Survey (ALLBUS) monitors social trends in Germany. The special topics of investigation for this data collection included attitudes towards politics, economics, environmental issues, work and profession, social structure, marriage and family, religion, and goals of the middle class in West and East Germany, with particular emphasis on differences between the two. Basic demographic and socioeconomic data also were collected.
This data collection has been deaccessioned; it is no longer distributed by ICPSR. The data are currently available at German Social Survey (ALLBUS), 1991.
