Abstract: The international Social Science Survey Program (ISSP) is an ongoing program of crossnational collaboration. Formed in 1984, the group develops topical modules dealing with important areas of social science as supplements to regular national surveys. The ''Work Orientations'' module includes data from Austria, Great Britain, Hungary, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Norway, Northern Ireland, the Netherlands, United States, and West Germany. The module covers three main topics: (1) general attitudes to work and leisure (e.g., work vs. leisure time, the work ethic and commitment to work, the role of work in creating feelings of personal worth, and the alienating effects of not having work), (2) work organization (e.g., attitudes about self-employment, public vs. private sector work, full-time vs. part-time, job sharing, profit sharing, large vs. small workplaces, and attitudes toward getting ahead), and (3) work content, including collective interests and second jobs (e.g., characteristics or qualities of work, unions, employers, and managers, collective interests organized around work, and information about second jobs including reasons why second jobs were held).
