National Organizations Survey (NOS), 1991 Version 1

DOI

This study is a representative sample of United States work organizations, with data from informants about human resources policies and practices. Employed respondents in the 1991 General Social Survey gave identification and location information about their employers and the employers of working spouses. Each employee interviewed in person was matched to his or her employer, and an informant from the work establishment (either the personnel director or the chief executive officer) was interviewed by telephone or by mail questionnaire. Industry data from published government sources were merged with these data. Topics covered include employer staffing procedures, interval job ladders, promotion chains, job training programs, employee benefits and incentives, and structural characteristics of organizations. All United States business establishments with one or more paid employees (including self-employed owners). Cross-sectional, implicit sample, proportional to size of establishment (determined by the number of employees). 2006-01-18 File CB6240.PDF was removed from any previous datasets and flagged as a study-level file, so that it will accompany all downloads.
