The data were collected to assess levels of support among citizens of the Moscow Oblast for democratic rights, institutions, and processes, and to test several hypotheses about the democratic values within socialist political systems. The data cover a broad array of topics, including political tolerance, valuation of liberty, support for the norms of democracy, rights awareness, support for dissent, support for an independent media, support for the institution of competitive elections, and anti-Semitism. Questions were asked about the respondents' knowledge of current events in the Soviet Union, interest in politics, familiarity and contact with political leaders, level of political involvement, views on political issues, consumption of alcoholic beverages, and attitudes towards specific social, political, and ethnic groups. Demographic information includes age, education, occupation, birthplace, religion, and marital status. The self-administered portion of the data collection consists of a personality inventory and a word game.
