Methods

Sample

Sampled Universe
Private households with persons who were at least 18 years of age
Sampling
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). Samples of individuals: 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.

Collection Mode

  • Personal interview with standardized questionnaire (PAPI – Paper and Pencil Interviewing; since 2000: CAPI – Computer Assisted Personal Interviewing), supplementary data from accompanying ISSP surveys (self-completion questionnaires, drop off).

Description

  • Abstract

    This data set contains geographical data that could not be included in the regular scientific use files because of data protection concerns. For analyses, the data can be merged with the scientific use file of the ALLBUS – Cumulation 1980-2012 using the respondent ID as key. The following indicators are available: Residence in West- or East-Germany: 1994-2012 Federal State: 1994-2012 Administrative district (“Regierungsbezirk”): 1980-2012 Political size of municipality: 1980-2010 BIK-region: 1994-2010 Municipality code (AGS): 1994-2012 Spatial planning regions (“Raumordnungsregion“ (ROR)): 1994-2012 District code (“Kreiskennziffer”) in the sampling year: 1994-2012 Number of the Sampling-Point: 1994-2012 Post code: 1998, 2006-2012
