Center for Research on Social Reality [Spain] Survey, May 1991: Education and Social Mobility (ICPSR 9894)
Principal Investigator(s): Centro de Investigaciones Sobre la Realidad Social (CIRES)
This data collection is part of a continuing series of semi-monthly surveys of individuals in Spain. Each survey consists of three sections. The first section collects information on respondents' attitudes regarding personal and national issues. This section includes questions on level of life satisfaction and frequency of relationships, as well as a rating of the importance of national issues. The second section varies according to the monthly topic, with this survey's topics focusing on education and social mobility. Among the issues investigated are the adequacy of completed education to present occupation, evaluation of necessary training, educational level at first job, assessment of mobility at current place of employment, job satisfaction, desired working status, educational level and social class of grandparents, parents, siblings, spouse or partner, and children, and perception of differences among the social classes. The third section collects demographic data such as sex, age, religion, income, and place of residence.
