Danish Gallup Omnibus Data 1977 comprises 21 omnibus surveys carried out by the Danish Gallup Institute in 1977. #Each of the 21 omnibuses consists of a number of recurring questions as well as a number of special questions (concerning topical events). # #The questions common to all 1977 omnibuses are: The respondent's sex, age and marital status; the respondent's occupational status, education and gross income; gross household income; the bread-winner's occupation; number of persons in the household; number of children (persons under 15) and number of adults (persons aged 15 and over); the respondent's status in household; status of the housewife; type of dwelling and residence according to degree of urbanization; social group; party preference; as well as a number of questions about the respondent's newspaper reading habits. # #The special questions in this omnibus deal with the following issues: # #Knowledge of and attitude to the Social Democratic proposal concerning economic industrial democracy; attitude to a central fund; the consequences if only the employers pay to such a fund; whether the respondent prefers to own shares in an enterprise or have a share in a central fund; membership of a trade union under LO (the Danish Trades Union Congress); knowledge of the so-called birth criterion as applied in Greenland; main cause of unemployment: too few jobs or too high unemployment benefit; and what the respondent prefers: that unemployment benefit is reduced or that the Labour Exchange is made more efficient
