Summary
This data collection was designed to provide systematic data for analyzing class structure. The central objective of the survey was to develop rigorous measures of the relational dimensions of social inequality (particularly relations of authority, autonomy, and property) to complement data on the gradational dimensions of social inequality (e.g., income, education, and occupational status). In order to explore the macro-properties of class structures and their effects via comparative analysis, the survey was replicated in a number of countries in addition to the United States. This collection presents data for ten countries: the United States (1980), Sweden (1980), Finland (1981), Norway (1982), Canada (1982), Great Britain (1984), West Germany (1985), Denmark (1985), Australia (1986), and Japan (1987). Seven general topic areas are covered: class relations, other aspects of social structural location, organizational context, class biography and class experience, the sexual division of labor in the home, social and political attitudes, and political participation. Questions addressing the respondent's location within class relations cover work-related issues such as supervision, decision-making, autonomy, respondent's location within the organizational hierarchy of the work place, ownership, labor-market position, and income. Information on other aspects of social structural location includes occupation, industry, geographical location, sex, race, and ethnicity of respondents. Among the measures of organizational context are size of employing organization, linkages to the state sector, linkages to larger corporations, and industrial sector. Under the topics of class biography and class experience, information is provided concerning class origins and job histories of the respondent, his or her parents, spouse, and closest friends, and class-...
