Summary View help for Summary
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 old age. The survey gauged attitudes regarding old age and the elderly, and investigated actual circumstances of elderly life in Spain, such as living arrangements, daily levels of physical activity, amount of health problems experienced during the past two weeks, consumption of tobacco and alcohol, frequency of sexual relations, retirement status and age at retirement, leisure activities, and use of social services. 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.
