Documents and Data


  • Fieldwork coordination and dataset integration by GALLUP EUROPE
  • Last update: January 26, 2006
  • Errata
    • Please note that contrary to the documentation (SPSS value label) in the cases of POLAND and HUNGARY data for Q49 (DEMOCRACY SATISFACTION) are coded inversed, i.e. from (1) VERY SATISFIED to (4) NOT AT ALL SATISFIED. The official report 2002.2 (report p. 30 and annex B23) states the erroneous frequencies. In the subsequent report 2003.2 the documented changes (annex B18) obviously consider the described data inversion.
