AbstractAutostereotype and heterostereotype of German school children in Cologne junior high schools. Topics: except for minimal differences (for example the question about Turkish language proficiency) the questionnaire is identical to the questionnaire described under ZA Study No. 1377. Beyond these comparable questions some further questions were posed: contacts with Turkish classmates; assumed concept of Turkish classmates about desired frequency of contact with Germans; contacts with the parents of Turkish classmates; communication problems; perceived disturbance from classmates speaking Turkish among themselves; help in learning German; doing homework together; assumption about the housing situation preferred by Turkish classmates, measured on proportion of foreigners in an apartment house; perceived similarity or difference in behavior of Turkish classmates from behavior of Germans; interest in a trip to Turkey; presence of Turkish colleagues with parents; attitude to Turkish classmates remaining in the Federal Republic. Demography: age (classified); sex; nationality; marital status; family composition; number of siblings; age of father or mother (classified); occupational position of father; employment of mother. Also encoded was (filled out by interviewer): date; school form; year of school; preparation class; number of schoolchildren in the class; number of Turkish schoolchildren in the class; other foreign schoolchildren in the class; part of town in Cologne in which the school is.
