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.
2013-4-9P7rEL COMBINED REGIONS GREECEStarting with Eurobarometer 62 the Northern and Southern Aegean Islands ("Voreio Aigaio" with NUTS 2 code GR41 and "Notio Aigaio" with NUTS 2 code GR42) as well as the Ionian Islands ("Ionia Nisia" with NUTS 2 code GR22) are not covered. The documentation for P7rEL code 4 is not correct. The data only cover the island of Crete (NUTS 2 code GR43). This has been confirmed by TNS Opinion & Social as of March 26, 2013.
2016-6-16qc9 (SPAIN)Inconsistencies have been detected in Eurobarometer 77.4 for SPAIN in variable QC9. Due to a critical translation error, the fieldwork in Spain was repeated by phone on November 12 and 13, for QC9 together with selected substantial and demographic questions. Responses from SPAIN to qc9 as resulting from this telephone survey and as reported on aggregate level, considerably differ from the micro data provided to the archive for the original face-to-face survey. For this reason QC9 data for Spain have been recoded to MISSING (9); the data for all other countries can be considered as correct. See also: TNS Opinion & Social: Special Eurobarometer 393 / Wave 77.4: Discrimination in the EU in 2012. Survey requested by the European Commission, Directorate-General Justice and co-ordinated by Directorate-General for Communication. Brussels, November 2012, page 127 / TS3. [Erratum updated; first published 2015-02-26]
2015-4-20qa10 / qa11 Variable label exchanged: qa10 should be NATIONAL DEVELOPMENT AID TARGET and qa11 EU DEVELOPMENT AID TARGET.
2015-5-26p13be (LANGUAGE OF INTERVIEW - BELGIUM)Starting with Eurobarometer 73.5 the original data for p13be (LANGUAGE OF INTERVIEW - BELGIUM) are reversed, i.e. (almost) all respondents in NUTS 1 regions Wallonia and Brussels are coded as "Dutch" and (almost) all respondents in the Flemish Region as "French" in p13be. Contrary to the variable note the data have NOT BEEN CORRECTED by the archive. Please recode accordingly [recode p13be (1=2)(2=1)].
2016-7-28p7at, p7at_rPlease notice that value label for code 6 in p7at should read "Kaernten (Carinthia)". As confirmed by TNS, the addition of Osttirol (Eastern Tyrol) as suggested by the original value label is not correct. Herewith the variable p7at corresponds to the NUTS 2 classification for Austria. 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.
2016-7-28nutsPlease notice that value label for code AT21 for Austria should read "Kaernten (Carinthia)". As confirmed by TNS, the addition of Osttirol (Eastern Tyrol) as suggested by the original value label is not correct. The value label and the corresponding documentation will be corrected with the next update.
2017-1-20qa2 value 3Please note that the value label for code 3 should read "Not increase aid even though it has been promised". The value label will be corrected 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.
