Version V1

This study surveyed two separate samples of Buenos Aires residents in 1960. Respondents in Sample A (Part 1), drawn from household members, were asked to provide details about their employment and information about their foreign background and arrival in Argentina if they were immigrants. The respondents' native language, their familiarity with it, and their feelings toward their native country were also assessed. Family heads, included in Sample B (Part 2), along with the questions asked of Sample A respondents, also answered questions about their leisure activities, their outlook on life, and attitudes toward people. Several variables traced the respondents' occupational patterns beginning at age 21 and continuing through the time of the interview. The respondents' fathers' and grandfathers' occupations were also ascertained. Derived measures evaluate the respondents' own occupational mobility as well as occupational change from one generation of their family to the next. Demographic information covers the respondents' age, gender, marital status, level of education, and income.
