Abstract: The International Social Survey Program (ISSP) is an ongoing program of crossnational collaboration. Formed in 1983, the group develops topical modules dealing with important areas of social science as supplements to regular national surveys. This collection, the third module on social inequality (see INTERNATIONAL SOCIAL SURVEY PROGRAM: SOCIAL INEQUALITY, 1987 [ICPSR 9383] and INTERNATIONAL SOCIAL SURVEY PROGRAM: SOCIAL INEQUALITY, 1992 [ICPSR 6493]), contains data from Australia, Austria, Bulgaria, Canada, Chile, Cyprus, Czech Republic, France, Germany (West and East), Great Britain, Hungary, Israel, Japan, Latvia, New Zealand, Northern Ireland, Norway, Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, and the United States. Questions asked of respondents focused on equality of income, wealth, and opportunity. Respondents were asked for their perceptions of the extent of present inequality, explanations for inequality, and the role of government to reduce inequality. Demographic data on respondents such as age, sex, employment, income, marital status, education, religion, political affiliation, region of residence, and trade union membership also are provided.
