  • Abstract

    This data collection contains data from three multi-thematic inquiries into changes occurring within society in Germany. A variety of social and political topics were dealt with in each of the surveys. These include attitudes toward and personal importance of work, family and children, and religion. Self-described social status and sense of receiving one's "just share" from society were also investigated. Political topics treated include attitudes toward governmental priorities, desired levels of social and defense spending, and attitudes toward the political parties.
