  • Abstract

    These data are part of a larger survey conducted by the Public Opinion Research Center of the Institute of Philosophy, Sociology, and Law, Lithuanian Academy of Sciences. Those surveyed were asked to answer two open-ended questions, previously used in the United States in 1985 (INTERSECTION OF PERSONAL AND NATIONAL HISTORY, 1985: [UNITED STATES] [ICPSR 9257]), that elicited responses on which national and world events or changes occurring during the past 60 years were especially important to the respondent. Respondents whose mother tongue was Lithuanian were given the questionnaire in the Lithuanian language. Others, mainly Russians, were given the questionnaire in Russian. Demographic data include ethnic identity, age, education, and gender.
