UniverseEVS 2017: The target population is defined as: individuals aged 18 or older (with no upper age limit) that have address of residence (not residential) in [country] within private households at the date of beginning of fieldwork (or in the date of the first visit to the household, in case of random-route selection). EVS 2008: Persons 18 years or older who are resident within private households, regardless of nationality and citizenship or language. In Armenia persons 15 years or older and in Finland persons from 18 to 74 years were interviewed. EVS 1999: Adult population of the country 18 years and older (no upper age limit) EVS 1990: Adult population of the country 18 years and older EVS 1981: Adult population of the country 18 years and older
Sampling Procedure Sampling Procedure
Representative single stage or multi-stage sampling of the adult population of the country 18 years old and older was used for the EVS 2017. Sample size was set as effective sample size: 1200 for countries with population over 2 million, 1000 for countries with population less than 2 million. 8 countries out of 16 deviated from the guidelines and planned with an effective sample size below the set threshold. Germany, Netherlands, Iceland and Switzerland, due to the mixed mode design, allocated only part (50% or more) of the effective sample size to the interviewer-administered mode. Sample design and other relevant information about sampling were reviewed by the EVS-Methodology Group (EVS-MG) and approved prior to contracting of fieldwork agency or starting of data collection. In case of on-field sampling EVS-MG proposed necessary protocols for documentation of the probabilities of selection of each respondent. The sampling was documented using the Sampling Design Form (SDF) delivered by the national teams (see the EVS2017 Methodological Guidelines, Sampling). The SDF includes the description of the sampling frame and each sampling stage as well as the calculation of the planned gross and net sample size to achieve the required effective sample. Additionally, it includes the analytical description of the inclusion probabilities of the sampling design that are used to calculate design weights. EVS 2008: Representative multi-stage or stratified random sample of the adult population of the country 18 years old and older (except Armenia 15+ and Finland 18 to 74 years). They were supposed to have sufficient command of one of the respective national language(s) to answer the questionnaire. The net sample size (in the sense of completed interviews) is 1500 respondents per country, except Northern Cyprus and Northern Ireland (with 500 interviews each), Iceland (808), Cyprus (1000), Ireland (1013), Norway (1090), Finland (1134), Sweden (1187), Switzerland (1272) France (random sample: 1501, two additional quota samples: 1570), Germany (disproportional sample East: 1004, West: 1071). For country-specific in-formation, see EVS, GESIS (2010): EVS 2008 Method Report. GESIS-Technical Reports 2010/17. Retrieved from EVS webpage. EVS 1999: Representative multi-stage random sample of the adult population of the country 18 years old and older. They were supposed to have sufficient command of one of the respective national language(s) to answer the questionnaire. With the exception of Greece, in all countries surveys were carried out by experienced professional survey organizations. The slightly different sampling procedures in each country are described in detail in the source book of Loek Halman, The European Values Study: A Third Wave. Source book of the 1999/2000 European Values Study Surveys. Tilburg: EVS, WORC, Tilburg University 2001. Retrieved from EVS website/Surveys/Survey 1999: EVS webpage. EVS 1990: Representative multi-stage random sample respective quota sample of the adult population of the country 18 years old and older. EVS 1981: Nationally representative samples were selected. The target number of interviews in each country was set at 1000, with an additional booster quota sample of 200 young adults aged 18-24.
Mode of Collection Mode of Collection
Mode of collection: mixed mode Face-to-face interview: CAPI (Computer Assisted Personal Interview) Face-to-face interview: PAPI (Paper and Pencil Interview) Telephone interview: CATI (Computer Assisted Telephone Interview) Self-administered questionnaire: CAWI (Computer-Assisted Web Interview) Self-administered questionnaire: Paper EVS 2017: In all countries, fieldwork was conducted on the basis of detailed and uniform instructions prepared by the EVS advisory groups. The main mode in EVS 2017 is face to face (interviewer-administered). An alternative self-administered form was possible but as a parallel mixed mode, i.e. there was no choice for the respondent between modes: either s/he was assigned to face to face, either s/he was assigned to web or web/mail format. In all countries included in the first pre-release, the EVS questionnaire was administered as face-to-face interview (CAPI or/and PAPI). The EVS 2017 Master Questionnaire was provided in English and each national Programme Director had to ensure that the questionnaire was translated into all the languages spoken by 5% or more of the population in the country. A central team monitored the translation process by means of the Translation Management Tool (TMT), developed by CentERdata (Tilburg). EVS 2008: Face-to-face interviews with standardized questionnaire. In all countries, fieldwork was conducted on the basis of detailed and uniform instructions prepared by the EVS advisory groups. The EVS questionnaires were administered as face-to-face interviews in the appropriate national language(s). As far as the data capture is concerned, CAPI or PAPI was used in nearly all countries. Exceptions are Finland (internet panel) and Sweden (postal survey). The English basic questionnaire was translated into other languages by means of the questionnaire translation system WebTrans, a web-based translation platform designed by Gallup Europe. The whole translation process was closely monitored and quasi-automated documented (see EVS (2010): EVS 2008 Guidelines and Recommendations. GESIS-Technical Reports 2010/16. Retrieved from EVS webpage. EVS 1999: Face-to-face interviews with standardized questionnaire. In Iceland about a quarter of the respondents were interviewed by telephone. These were respondents in remote areas of the country. EVS 1990: Personal interview with standardized questionnaire EVS 1981: Personal interview with standardized questionnaire

  •  European Values Study (EVS)
    The European Values Study 1981-2017 is a large-scale, cross-national and longitudinal survey research program carried out under the responsibility of the European Values Study Foundation. The five EVS waves 1981, 1990, 2008, and 2017 cover a broad range of topics including the main domains of life: work and leisure time, family and sexuality, religion, politics and ethics. The EVS holding includes integrated datasets on every EVS wave and additionally for the waves 1999 and 2008 the national datasets. The current EVS Longitudinal Data File 1981-2017 is based on the four waves and can be easily merged with the World Values Survey (1981-2021) to an Integrated Values Surveys 1981-2021 Data File.
