Version V1

The data were collected in 1966 to facilitate the exploration of relationships between the demographic and career pattern attributes of the Soviet leadership and attitudinal variance within the leadership. Two types of data were included in the study: attitudinal and demographic/career pattern data. The attitudinal data were generated by a content analysis of a sample of articles in "representative" Soviet periodicals for the year 1965. Information on the process of policy-making, socialization, resource allocation, and popular mobilization within the Soviet party was collected. Demographic and career pattern data were also gathered to supplement the information on the Soviet officials in the attitudinal sample. Demographic variables specify date of birth, nationality, social class, education, party membership and positions held, membership year, membership of the Communist Politburo, types of career, and fields of specialization.
