Summary:

The main objectives of this data collection effort were to assemble a set of cross-nationally comparable microdata samples for Economic Commission for Europe (ECE) countries based on the 1990 national population and housing censuses in countries of Europe and North America, and to use these samples to study the social and economic conditions of older persons. The samples are designed to allow research on a wide range of issues related to aging, as well as on other social phenomena. The Finland microdata sample contains information on persons aged 50 and over and on the persons who reside with them. Variables included in this dataset provide information on geographic area, type of residency, type of dwelling, household characteristics and demographic characteristics such as age, sex, year of birth, household composition, marital status, number of children, education, income, religion, and occupation.
