Description
  • Abstract

    ALLBUScompact is offered as an alternative to the structurally more complex full version of ALLBUS. It addresses the needs of newcomers to data analysis by providing a simplified demography module containing an easily manageable group of the most important demographic indicators. All topical question modules not containing sensitive data are retained as in the ALLBUS full version (scientific use file). For a comprehensive description of study topics please compare Study No. 4582 (ALLBUS/GGSS 1980-2014).
Temporal Coverage
  • 1980-01 / 2014-09
Geographic Coverage
  • Germany (DE)
    (until 1990 only former West Germany, including West Berlin)
Sampled Universe
Persons living in private households in the Federal Republic of Germany who were over 18 years of age at the time of the survey. Starting in 1991, foreign target persons were also included in the ALLBUS samples. If there was no sufficiently good knowledge of German, these target persons are counted among the systematic dropouts.
Sampling
Probability: Stratified: Disproportional; Probability: Multistage; Sampling Procedure Comment: Household samples: From 1980 to 1992 and in 1998, a multi-stage random sample of private households was conducted addressing all persons who were at least 18 years of age (ADM Sample Design). Person Samples: In 1994, 1996, and from 2000 a two-stage, disproportionate random sample was conducted in West Germany (including West Berlin) and East Germany (including East Berlin), comprising all persons living in private households who were at least 18 years old on 1 January of the year of the survey. In the first sample stage municipalities (Gemeinden) in western Germany and municipalities in eastern Germany were selected with a probability proportional to their number of adult residents; in the second sample stage individual persons were selected at random from the municipal registers of residents. As of 1991 the ALLBUS sample also includes foreigners living in Germany. Targeted individuals who did not have adequate knowledge of German to conduct the interview were treated as systematic unit non-responses.
