Description
  • Abstract

    Objective: The data were collected for the ERC-project ‘Realising Eurasia: Civilisation and Moral Economy in the 21st Century’. The project studied small family businesses in middle-sized cities in eight countries of the Eurasian landmass (China, Denmark, Germany, Hungary, India, Myanmar, Russia, Turkey). While the project’s focus was on detailed ethnographic investigations, the survey data complemented the qualitative data. Method: The survey data were collected in 2016 by the researchers in the project (one researcher in one city per country). The firms were selected according to a purposive sampling by each researcher. Firm owners (or those who were designated by the owner) filled out the questionnaire either on their own or together with the researcher. Questionnaire Content: family, work and business, politics and economy, household.
