Summary
To commemorate the International Women's Year, this instructional subset focused attention upon a wide range of topics relevant to the status of women. The subset was drawn from the first international survey of its kind on the subject, EUROBAROMETER 3: EUROPEAN MEN AND WOMEN, MAY 1975 (ICPSR 7416), conducted in May 1975 by Jacques-Rene Rabier, special advisor to the Commission of European Communities, and Ronald Inglehart of the Institute for Social Research, the University of Michigan. The Euro-Barometer surveys are an ongoing program of public opinion research sponsored by the nine nations of the European Community. Fieldwork for the project was performed by a consortium of European polling organizations for all the nine nations. The survey also included questions about economic and political issues of interest to the European Community, as well as items about respondents' assessment of the quality of life. Sixty selected variables from Euro-Barometer 3 are contained in this subset, with a respondent pool drawn from three of the European countries: Denmark, Great Britain, and Italy. The items are primarily concerned with respondents' attitudes toward changes in sex roles and the importance of issues related to the status of women. Respondents were asked to evaluate the social status of women, including job opportunities, work conditions, promotion prospects, wages, and job security for women vis-a-vis those of men, as well as the problems they were dealing with, such as health, housing, wages, unemployment, and other personal problems, and various aspects of the quality of life. Additional items probed respondents' opinions about women's participation in politics, gender equity in all spheres, and the effects of the European Common Market on women's status. Also elicited were respondents' personal emotional state and political interests. Demographic items specify age, marital status, sex, occupation, residential area, and ideological position
