Further Remarks

NotesQuestion module QA ‘One year to go to the European elections 2019’ was implemented on behalf of and financed by the European Parliament. It partly replicates questions formerly asked in the Special Eurobarometers 88.1 [ZA6925] and 87.1 [ZA6861] and introduces many new questions. No data are available for protocol items p8 (postal code), p9 (sample point number), p10 (interviewer number) and p11. Starting with Eurobarometer 89.2 no separate sample is drawn for Northern Ireland, which is now covered by the sample for the United Kingdom. Accordingly, the formerly available weight variable w4 “WEIGHT UNITED KINGDOM” is obsolete and no longer included in the dataset. Questions qa5 to qa7 are not part of the basic and national questionnaires and have not been part of the dataset delivery. These questions are also not presented in the report and table volumes.

  •  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.
