Description
  • Abstract

    The main objectives of this data collection effort were to assemble a set of cross-nationally comparable microdata samples based on the 1990 national population and housing censuses in countries of Europe and North America, and to use these samples to study the social and economic conditions of older persons. The samples are designed to allow research on a wide range of issues related to aging, as well as on other social phenomena. The Latvian dataset examined the type and size of dwelling units, amenities such as flush toilets, baths/showers, and kitchens, and the type of utility systems that were available. Also covered were the characteristics of the buildings within which these dwelling units were located. Demographic and socioeconomic information on household members includes age, sex, ethnic background, household size and composition, marital status, disabilities, fertility, mortality, education, religion, employment status, income, and occupation.
