Questionnaires

The most important pieces of documentation for our data sets are the questionnaires. The questionnaire files are English-language translations of the original Russian questionnaires. The English versions have been translated as literally as possible. The order of the questions and the layout of the pages have been preserved in the English versions.

The questionnaires are also designed to function as codebooks. The variable names, as they appear in the data sets, are usually listed below or to the left of the questions. If the abbreviation (char) appears with a variable name, then the responses to that question are stored in a character variable. If there is no variable name associated with a particular question, then the responses to that question do not appear in the data set.

Some questions in the questionnaires are color coded. Pink means that the question was added. Green indicates changes from the previous round (e.g., year). Gray means that the questions were asked, but the data are not available for public use - the questions were added at the request of the Pension Office and are for their use only.

The original Russian-language questionnaires are available for all rounds, with the exception of the community questionnaires, which are only available for 2000-2003 and from 2011 on.   Please note that, unlike the English-language versions, variable names do not appear in the Russian-language versions.

All of the questionnaires are available in PDF format.  This format allows documents to be viewed, downloaded, and printed using the Adobe Acrobat Reader.
