Danish Gallup Omnibus Data 1961 consists of 41 omnibus surveys conducted by the Danish Gallup Institute in 1961. The surveys are numbered from 01 to 48, but omnibus nos. 03 and 41 were not e- present in the material received from the Roper Center. Bus nos. 13-16 are omitted from the year, as they contained neither topical questions nor information about party preference. # #Each survey contains a number of demographic variables common to all the surveys of the year, plus a number of questions dealing with current topics. In this year, the topical questions were repeated in up to four omnibuses. The present data material comprises the demographic variables and topical questions in omnibus numbers 25 to 27. # #The demographic variables are: sex, age, occupational status of head of family, income of head of family, social group, composition of household, size of household, urbanization, party preference. income of family (bus 35-48), supporter's age (bus 35-48), education (bus 42-48), number of children in household (bus 42-48), respondent's occupation (bus 45-48) and type of home (21-24).
