Center for Research on Social Reality [Spain] Survey, April 1995: Social Inequalities (ICPSR 6968)
Principal Investigator(s): Centro de Investigaciones Sobre la Realidad Social (CIRES)
This data collection is part of a series of nationwide surveys conducted from October 1990 to June 1996 in Spain. The questionnaires for each of these surveys consisted of three sections. The first section collected information on respondents' attitudes regarding personal, national, and international issues, and included questions on respondents' level of life satisfaction and frequency of visits with relatives, neighbors, and friends. The second section contained a topical module of questions that varied from survey to survey, with this survey's topic focusing on social inequality in Spain. Among the issues investigated were opinions on the extent of social inequality in general, whether inequality had increased or decreased over the past decade, whether there was inequality in employment, education, and health care, the amount of inequality between men and women in the family, business firms, the media, political parties, the Catholic Church, labor unions, armed forces, education, and public administration, and the amount of conflict between rich and poor, working class and middle class, and the young and the elderly. The second section also gauged opinions on the importance of various personal attributes (such as ambition, intelligence, race, sex, and education) on the achievement of success in life, and asked respondents to identify the qualities that they most valued in men and women, and in their mothers and fathers. Questions in the third section of the questionnaire elicited socioeconomic information, such as respondent's sex, age, marital status, size of household, occupation, education, religion, religiosity, place of birth, and income.
