The Contextual Database of the Swedish Generations and Gender Survey

The Contextual Database of the Swedish Generations and Gender Survey (GGS) provides macro-level contextual indicators of Sweden as part of the contextual database of the international Generations and Gender Programme (GGP). The goal of the GGP is to provide internationally comparable data for investigations of causes and consequences of fundamental changes in family and fertility behavior of women and men, and to determine to what extent contextual factors account for the diversity of these changes across Europe. To this end the GGP comprises harmonized national individual-level panel surveys (link to the survey info) and matched comparative macro-level contextual indicators (Contextual Databases). The Swedish CDB is open access and can be downloaded from the website of the GGP: www.ggp-i.org and from the following link:

The Swedish Contextual Database follows the general template developed by the GGP consortium to assure comparability across countries. It provides economic, demographic, social, and policy time-series indicators at the national and regional levels. The data are integrated into the comparative GGP Contextual Database. The extensive content of the CDB, the enhanced metadata documentation, and the automatic geocoding make this database a unique tool for analyses of data from national and international surveys beyond the GGS, including studies of macro developments.
