The main purpose of the study was to investigate occupational patterns and social
mobility of Israeli adults. The
was conducted in year 2001 on a representative
sample of Israel households. Only one adult (age 18+) was investigated in each sampled
household, using an extended questionnaire (record #954901). These major respondents
were asked about their current work and occupational status at the workplace as well
as on their entire occupational history: mode of getting each job, period of each work,
economic branch and status at work, weekly work hours, managerial status, reason for
leaving the job, children’s age at those work periods and childcare arrangement while
they were working. The dataset also includes respondents’ detailed marital, child-birth
and cohabitation histories, incomes and economic status, self-definition of religiosity,
attitudes toward work and political attitudes. Major respondents also reported on the other
adult members of their household using a short questionnaire (record #954902).
Record #954902 contains basic demographic and occupational details of the other adults
in the household, including occupational status 5 years ago, parents' place of birth and
parents' occupational status when those adults were 16 year old. Altogether, the dataset
includes details of 3,253 individuals. The research has been sponsored by Israel Science
Foundation and directed by Haifa University while the field work was carried out by
B.I. Cohen Institute of Tel-Aviv University. N= 1,203 major respondents and 2,050 other
adults in the same households.
