Note on Eurobarometer Questionnaires


All Eurobarometer questionnaires are reproduced with the license granted by its author, the European Commission, Directorate-General for Information, Communication, Culture and Audiovisual Media, 200 rue da le Loi, B-1049 Brussels, and by permission of its publishers, the Office for Official Publications of the European Communities, 2 rue Mercier, L-2985 Luxembourg (© European Communities).

On request of the European Commission the questionnaires are only made available on the web if the respective Eurobarometer has completely been released. For Eurobarometer with embargo provisions, subsets of the basic English or basic bilingual questionnaires are made available.


The pdf questionnaires for Eurobarometer up to wave 31 have been made available by a collaborative effort of the former Steinmetzarchief, Amsterdam, and the Zentralarchiv, Cologne. We also gratefully acknowledge the support granted by the European Commission’s Eurobarometer Unit (DG-X) and by the Zentrum für Europäische Umfrageanalysen und Studien (ZEUS) who contributed many field questionnaires from the early years. Since Eurobarometer 32 (1989) the co-ordinating fieldwork institutes have regularly supplied the archive with the complete sets of basic and field questionnaires. Intermittently the Finnish Social Science Data Archive (FSD) has collaborated in making available the pdf versions of the Finnish field questionnaires.

Please apologize if for early waves the quality of some questionnaire images is unsatisfactory or that a few questionnaires could not or not completely be recovered. The basic English and French questionnaires from Eurobarometer 32 (1989) onwards (except survey 44.2bis) are available in searchable "image+text" Portable Document Format.
