By contrast, this study uses a question from ALLBUS, the German Social Survey, that asks: "Please tell me for each institution how much trust you place in it." Clearly, this question does not focus on incumbent authorities in the same way as the GSS question.

By contrast, both native German workers in the ALLBUS and native German and foreign guest-workers in the GSOEP are between 38 and 39 years of age (for the age structure of the immigrant population see also Schmidt, 1996b).
Only a minor fraction of ethnic German immigrants entered during the period 1962 to 1986; their distribution of duration of residence in the ALLBUS is similarly double-peaked.
Slightly more than one third of the native men in the ALLBUS sample and even more than 40% of the native men in the GSOEP sample are blue collar workers.
The fractions of civil servants among migrants and controls in the ALLBUS are virtually identical, with the share of highly ranked civil servant workers even higher among ethnic German immigrants.
While, in principle, in the ALLBUS and the GSOEP different and more detailed industry classifications are available, here the taxonomy proposed by De New and Schmidt (1994) is utilized.
