2013-4-9P7PT REGIONS PORTUGALStarting with Eurobarometer 62 the NUTS 2 REGIONS for PORTUGAL have changed. In accordance with the official EUROSTAT NUTS 2 version 2003 the region “LISBOA E VALE DO TEJO” is split up and the subregion “Lezíria do Tejo” reinstated to the “Alentejo” Region; “Médio Tejo” and “Oeste” are reinstated to the “Centro” Region. The documentation for P7PT code 3 “Lisboa e Vale do Tejo” is not correct and should read “LISBOA” (NUTS2003-2010: PT17). Regions “CENTRO” and “ALENTEJO” do not change names but regional coverage (NUTS2003-2010: PT16 and PT18). The regions “NORTE” (PT11) and “ALGARVE” (PT15) remain unchanged. Starting with Eurobarometer 62 the autonomous regions AÇORES (PT20) and MADEIRA (PT30) are not covered anymore. This has been confirmed by TNS Opinion & Social as of March 26, 2013.

Variables labels should read: p7at “REGION - AUSTRIA NUTS 2” and p7at_r “REGION - AUSTRIA NUTS 1”. The value labels and variable labels and the corresponding documentation will be corrected with the next update.

Further Remarks

NotesModule QA partly replicates questions on the “economic and financial crisis” asked in the context of Eurobarometer 75.2 [ZA5480] or 76.1 [ZA5565]. Module QB replicates the module on “helplines for social services” surveyed in the context of Eurobarometer 75.2 [ZA5480]. Module QC on “railway competition” was not surveyed in the Republic of Cyprus and Malta. For France, Ireland, Greece, the Czech Republic and Bulgaria the end of fieldwork dates coded in the dataset (P1) differ from the end of fieldwork dates indicated in the official technical specifications. d8 (AGE EDUCATION): Please note that the coding instruction in the Portuguese field questionnaire does not show any deviant specification, therefore no data correction is carried out for Portuguese data. The documentation will be adjusted accordingly with the next update.

  •  EB - Standard and Special Eurobarometer
    Since the early nineteen seventies the European Commission´s “Standard and Special Eurobarometer” are regularly monitoring the public opinion in the European Union member countries at times. Interviews are conducted face-to-face, in each spring and each autumn, at all times based on new samples with a size 1000 respondents per country. Separate samples are drawn for Northern Ireland and East Germany. After the EU enlargement in 2004, remaining and new Candidate Countries are also regularly included in selected surveys. The Standard Eurobarometer modules ask for attitudes towards European unification, institutions and policies, complemented by measurements for general socio-political orientations, as well as by respondent and household demographics. Intermittently special Eurobarometer modules extensively address topics, such as environment, science and technology, health or family issues, social or ethnic exclusion, quality of life etc. The “European Communities Studies” 1970-1973 can be considered forerunner studies, as well the “Attitudes towards Europe” from 1962.
