Research Data Centre
  •  EB - Candidate Countries Eurobarometer
    In 2000, the European Commission launched a series of surveys in the 13 countries that at this time were applying for European Union membership, the 13 Candidate Countries or initially Applicant Countries: Bulgaria, Republic of Cyprus, Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, and Turkey. Representative national samples (n=1000) were drawn up to five times a year and respondents were interviewed face-to-face in the respective national languages. Unlike former Central and Eastern Eurobarometer, the Candidate Countries Eurobarometer included selected trend questions and topical modules, which were to a large extent comparable to the Standard series. After the EU enlargement in 2004 remaining and new Candidate Countries are regularly included in selected Standard and Special Eurobarometer surveys.
