The harmonised core module data are available in the combined data set. The questions contained in the core modules of the two SASAS questionnaires for 2003 were asked of 7000 respondents, while the remaining rotating modules were asked of a half sample of approximately 3500 respondents each.
The combined data set contains 4980 records and 269 variables.
Core topics included in the questionnaires are: democracy, identity, public services, health status, HIV/AIDS, health behaviour, moral issues, crime, voting, demographics and other classificatory variables, nature of families and family authority.
This version of the combined dataset should be used when analysis is to be performed at individual level.
