  • Abstract

    Attitudes toward parity and the fall of the Berlin Wall. Topics: 1. Parity: Advocacy of women taking responsible positions in politics, government institutions, and business; areas where women should take more responsible positions (in political parties, governments, large business enterprises, public administrations, small and medium-sized business enterprises, courts, universities, and the Federal Armed Forces, none of the above, elsewhere); change in policy if more women were represented in politics; Advocacy of government measures to increase the quota of women in the Bundestag; opinion on various statements about the role of sex and origin in selection for positions (it does not matter whether a man or a woman takes responsibility, sex should play a role in selection for positions, origin should play a role in selection for positions, women should be preferred in selection for positions, those who prefer women in selection for positions must also prefer other groups). 2. Fall of the Wall: Longing back for the GDR; agreement with various statements about the GDR and the relationship between West and East Germans (many things were better in the GDR, West Germans treat East Germans from above, West Germans do not understand what East Germans accomplished in GDR times, West Germans do not understand what East Germans went through in GDR times); assessment of German unity rather positive or rather negative; Agreement with various statements on the peaceful revolution in the GDR and reunification (the peaceful revolution was a stroke of luck in German history, the fall of the Wall was a very moving moment for me, all in all reunification was successful, people in East and West Germany have come closer together after reunification, the alignment of living conditions in East and West Germany has progressed in recent years, East Germans are also materially better off after reunification). Demography: sex; age; school education; occupation; household size; number of persons older than 14 in household; net household income; party preference. Additionally coded were: Interview number; weight; city size (BIK); federal state; region (old federal states, new federal states).
