Documents and Data:


  • Current archive dataset version / update: v1.0.1 (2012)
  • Errata:
    • Variable REGION for Great Britain / United Kingdom in EUROBAROMETER 5-10 and 16-31A: Should read "EAST MIDLANDS" instead of "NORTH MIDLANDS".
    • The SUPPORT FOR COMMON MARKET INDEX is not correct. Corrected for ZA deliveries after March 15, 1999.
    • Dubious frequencies and inconsistencies have been detected for the HOUSEHOLD (FAMILY) INCOME variables (V296 and V303). Category '10' in variable V296 has extremely high frequencies for Ireland and Northern Ireland. These responses are coded '5' (DK/NA) in the harmonized variable V303. For unknown reasons responses to category '10' for Italy and to category '12' for Luxembourg are also coded to '5' in the harmonized variable V303. These variables should only be used with caution. Please notice also that V296 codebook category '09' for Denmark ("will not answer") is actually coded '99' in the data set. Correct data are not available (September 14, 2000).
    • INCOME (V296): For IRELAND category '10' (1.000-1.149 Pound) includes 435 respondents who did not answer to this question (DK/NA). The INCOME QUARTILES variable (V303) separates correctly. (ZA September 25, 2006)
    • SIZE OF COMMUNITY (V301) category 7 for Germany should be labelled '500.000 and more'.
