Content

AbstractThis data set documents the answers to the open questions on associations with the terms ´left´ and ´right´ (F029 and F030) that were part of the interview for ALLBUS 2008 (ZA4600). The two questions followed the self-placement on a left-right-continuum (F028/V106). The sequence of the two questions was randomized during the interview. This data set works as a supplement to the regular ALLBUS 2008 data. Together with the main data set it offers enhanced possibilities of analysis.

Sample of individuals: Two stage disproportionate random sample in western Germany (incl. West Berlin) and eastern Germany (incl. East Berlin). In the first sample stage municipalities (Gemeinden) in western Germany and municipalities in eastern Germany were selected with a probability proportional to their number of adult residents; in the second sample stage individual persons were selected at random from the municipal registers of residents. Targeted individuals who did not have adequate knowledge of German to conduct the interview were treated as systematic unit non-responses.

  •  ALLBUS
    The German General Social Survey (ALLBUS) collects up-to-date data on attitudes, behavior, and social structure in Germany. Every two years since 1980 a representative cross section of the population is surveyed using both constant and variable questions. The ALLBUS data become available to interested parties for research and teaching as soon as they are processed and documented.
