Further Remarks

NotesTopical module QA (Social climate) replicates questions asked in the context of Eurobarometer 77.4 (QB) and 73.5 (QB). Topical module QB (Development aid) partly replicates the corresponding module in Eurobarometer 77.4 (QA). Topical module QC (Cyber security) largely replicates the corresponding module in Eurobarometer 77.2 (QE). Topical module QE (Anti-microbial resistance) replicates the corresponding module in Eurobarometer 72.5 (QD). Variable d62t has been renamed d62t1. The standard NETUSE index has been renamed d62t2. Variable d40abc has been renamed d40t and modified. Variable qe3ab_t has been renamed qe3b_t and modified. Weights W15 (WEIGHT EU AC2 + CC1) and W19 (WEIGHT EU CC) were not coded in the original data delivery and have been dropped from the dataset.

  •  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.
