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".
    • Danish respondents who declared for political party "Venstre" (VOTE INTENTION) had been coded as falling into the missing value category during the raw data processing. The original coding has been made available by Danish Gallup via Danish Data Archives, and ZA recoded accordingly. Since April 1994, the ZA version of the ICPSR data set also contains the complete vote intention data for Denmark. The codebook documentation has been corrected for ZA deliveries after March 15, 1999.
    • In Question Q.142 (V71 to V73), the VALUE PRIORITY coding for Germany and Greece differs as follows (categories 10 to 12): 10.  More human society; 11.  Ideas count more; 12. Fight against crime. The codebook documentation is not correct. Corrected for ZA deliveries after March 15, 1999.

    • In addition, inconsistencies between the VALUE PRIORITY questions Q.136 / Q.138 (V65 / V67) and Q.142 (V71) have been reported for Denmark. The corresponding variables should be used with caution.
