Further Remarks

NotesThe ´Parlemeter´ module (QP1 to QP43) was implemented on behalf of and financed by the European Parliament. It largely replicates related questions asked in the context of Eurobarometer 77.4 and 78.2. The question identification in the variable names has been adapted to former European Parliament Eurobarometer adding ‘P’ to the question number (e.g. Q1.1 = QP1.1). No data are available for protocol items p8 (postal code), p9 (sample point number), p10 (interviewer number) and p11.

  •  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.
