Two European sections of the former Soviet Union are not included in this dataset: Azerbaijan, due to political unrest, and Kazakastan, due to interview cost.

Four-stage stratified random sample. In the initial stage of the sampling, geographical units were classified according to certain statistical indices based on their assumed importance in structuring the beliefs of ordinary respondents. In the second stage of the sampling, eight substrata were identified from each of the first-stage strata. At the third stage of the sampling, each geographical unit fitting the defined matrix was enumerated, and the adult residents of these units were sampled in the fourth stage.

Adult residents of those portions of the Soviet Union located in Europe, with the exception of Azerbaijan and Kazakastan.
