Description
  • Abstract

    Social networks. This study number comprises the data collected during the so called main studies. The main studies represent three surveys which have partially been used for methodic experiments. The questions are identical in every survey except for the described differences. Topics: frequency of contact with friends, relatives and colleages; existence of a trusted person; frequency of social activity in comparison with peers; mention of up to five contacts and characterization of these persons by gender, age, relation to the respondent, education, employment status and occupation, country of birth, citizenship, distance to the respondent´s place of residence, economic situation in comparison to the respondent, frequency of contact; mentioned people knowing each other; people skills (reciprocity); feeling of happiness (scalometer); attitude towards various topics of social coexistence (not asked in main study 1). Demography: self-reported diligence in answering the questionnaire (not asked in main study 1); evaluation of the survey (interesting, rich in variety, important for sciences, long, difficult, too personal); interruption of the survey; personal remarks about the survey. Additionally encoded: amount of the respondent´s incentive.
