Abstract: This survey was conducted in the United States, Russia, and the Komi Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic in the northwest Russian Federation in Europe to assess class structure, employment history, class consciousness, workplace authority, and political attitudes with respect to these three geographical locations. The datasets can be linked to measure differences and similarities among respondents. Variables include housing, employment status, promotion and pay, size of employer, when the respondent's job began, who decided on working arrangements (days off, pace, new tasks), self-employment, participation in policy decisions (such as production and budgeting), satisfaction with job, education, and training. In addition, respondents were queried about their age and family situation, parents' employment and education, geographical origin, race, ethnicity, gender, and work history. Other topics addressed include income and secondary employment, work regulation, opinions on government control versus privatization of areas such as mail delivery, railroads, banks, and hospitals, social class, participation in demonstrations, and views on the economy and politics.
