Registration is required for data download.

The release of the cumulated ISSP 'Role of Government' modules for the years 1985, 1990, 1996 and 2006 consists of two separate datasets: ZA4747 and ZA4748.

ZA4747 contains all the cumulated variables, while the supplementary data file ZA4748 'ISSP Cumulation ROG Add On' contains all those variables that could not be cumulated for various reasons. However, they can be matched easily to the cumulated file if necessary. A comprehensive overview on the contents, the structure and basic coding rules of both data files can be found in the following guide:
