Comments: These data are related to the International Class Structure Project (E.O. Wright, et al). This is Version 2 of the data. Version 1 (SB-515-004-1-1) was received from Dr. Jorge Raul Jorrat, Director of the Centro de Estudios de Opinion Publica at the University of Buenos Aires. The data were received as four DBase (DBF) files (the survey having been split into four "parts"). For Version 2 DPLS staff concatenated these parts and created a SAS version of the data. Additional work was done to the documentation. The entire data set has 345 variables and 2211 observations.

Access Status: Unrestricted access

Date Ordered: 10/1/1997

Documentation: As received from Dr. Jorrat, the documentation is entirely in Spanish. It includes a large manuscript entitled ESTRATIFICACION SOCIAL Y MOVILIDAD: Un estudio del Area Metropolitana de Buenos Aires (Please note this file is nearly 400 pages -- 1 MEG -- download with care!), which can be treated as the study documentation, and which contains, among other items, the Survey Questionnaire (Appendix E).

Also available is a variable frequency file which can be used as a partial codebook.

Note that the original documentation was received in A4 paper format. In Version 2 this has been reformatted to U.S. standard 8.5 x 11 inch paper. In addition, PostScript and HTML versions of the documentation files were created.

Abstract: Not available. See other data in the SB-515 series for related information.
