Scope and Content Note

The Grushin papers consist of public opinion poll data, codes, instructions, questionnaires, programs, analyses, reports, charts, tables, etc., from a number of polls conducted in the Soviet Union between 1960 and 1974 by Boris A. Grushin, a Russian sociologist and public opinion pollster. (Grushin is also founder and director of the Moscow-based public opinion firm "Vox Populi.")
Those public opinion surveys were prepared by various institutions: the Institute of Public Opinion, established by the newspaper Komsomol'skaia Pravda(1960-1967); the Institute of Concrete Social Research, the Philosophical Institute, and the Institute of Sociological Research, all three attached to the the Academy of Science of the USSR (1967-1974); and the Center for the Study of Public Opinion, at the Institute of Concrete Social Research (1969-1972).
These unique materials in Soviet history document the opinion of the Soviet people in general and of the Soviet youth in particular regarding social conditions and problems, urban issues, work and leisure, and values.
The collection is divided into three series, with the first two devoted to polls conducted by a certain institution, and the third to a specific public opinion project prepared by several institutions.
