|Title:||Census of Population and Housing, 1989 [Estonia]: UN Elderly Sample|
|Primary Investigator(s):||Population Activities Unit of the United Nations (UN)|
|Abstract:||The main objectives of this data collection effort were to assemble a set of cross-nationally comparable microdata samples for Economic Commission for Europe (ECE) countries based on the 1990 national population and housing censuses in countries of Europe and North America, and to use these samples to study the social and economic conditions of older persons. The samples are designed to allow research on a wide range of issues related to aging, as well as on other social phenomena. The Estonia microdata sample contains information on persons aged 50 and over and the persons who reside with them. Variables included in this dataset cover geographic area, type of residency, type of dwelling, and household characteristics, as well as demographic information such as age, sex, marital status, number of children, education, income, and occupation. This dataset is available to individuals only upon completion of a signed "Pledge of Confidentiality" which is required before the user can have access to the data.|
