Social Distinctions in Modern Russia


The Social Distinctions in Modern Russia surveys chart various issues characterising social differentiation in contemporary Russian society, such as the occupation, social mobility, property and income of the working-age Russian population as well as their attitudes towards civic life, politics, religion and other relevant issues. The surveys in this series have been conducted in 1990, 1998, 2006 and 2015. Additionally, the series includes a dataset that contains combined data from the four surveys. Many questions are repeated in the surveys, although the first datasets differ somewhat from the later datasets. The surveys are targeted at Russian citizens aged over 18.
