The 'Familie-Enquête Nederlandse Bevolking 1992-1993' [Netherlands Family Survey 1992-1993] is a dataset on socioeconomic characteristics and family background of spouses (as well as a subsample of singles), collected in 1992-1993 among a multi-stage random sample of 21-64 years of age of the Dutch population, conducted under the joint direction of principal investigators Wout C. Ultee and Harry B.G. Ganzeboom, at the Department of Sociology at Nijmegen University. The fieldwork was conducted by the Institute of Applied Social Sciences (ITS) of Nijmegen University. Funding was provided by Nijmegen University, with additional support by the Netherlands National Science Foundation NWO, Tilburg University and Utrecht University. The contents of the survey in brief: * 1000 primary respondents, constituting a self-weighting stratified random sample from the community population registers, who were interviewed in a mixed oral and selfadministered questionaire. Singles were underrepresented by approximately .5. * 800 spouses of primary respondents, interviewed at the same time as the primary respondents with (virtually) the same mixed oral and self-administered questionnaire. * Follow-up mail surveys to one surviving parent and one sibling of the primary respondent are currently in the field. A follow-up survey to the firm of the primary respondents is being planned. * Full accounts in life history format for both spouses of: - educational histories; education includes level and type; - occupational histories, including illness and unemployment; occupation include s occupational title, industry, employment status, supervising status, hours worked, income at beginning and end of job spell; life-histories of non-labour force activities (voluntary work, illness, unemployment); - residential history, including housing history; - marital history, including previous spouses. * Detailed and elaborate social and cultural characteristics of the parental family of both spouses, including education, occupation, culture consumption, material consumption, and transfer of income and property, as reported by the primary respondent and spouse. In the future these data will be supplemented with reports by parents and siblings. * Lifestyle characteristics of both spouses, including cultural and material consumption, cosmopolitan behavior, media behavior * Political attitudes and behavior & political characteristics of parental families. Politics includes voting, non-voting and post-materialism. * Religious attitudes and behavior & religious characteristics of parental family. * Education and occupation data for all siblings of the primary respondent, as reported by the primary respondent. * Education and occupation data for all children of the primary respondent, as reported by the primary respondent. * Household division of labour (attitudes and behavior) as reported by spouses separately. Thus the survey aims at giving an account of various important features of individuals and families in the Netherlands, together with the same characteristics of their spouses. Through the design of simultaneous interviewing of both spouses with a mixed (oral and write-in) instrument information was collected on over 1600 variables. The interview lasted on average 105 minutes. With its broad coverage and life-history format, the survey promises to become an important instrument of stratification and demographic research in the Netherlands.
