Documents and Data:

Remarks:

  • Current archive dataset version / update: v1.1.0 (2012)
  • Errata:
    • RELIGIOUS DENOMINATION is documented as "Orthodox" for code '3' in the original Eurobarometer codebooks and basic questionnaires starting with survey number 32. This is not correct in the case of the NETHERLANDS. Dutch respondents have been asked for the Protestant section "Gereformeerd" in the place of "Orthodox". Corrected in the ZA codebooks for deliveries after March 16, 1999.
    • SIZE OF COMMUNITY has not been documented correctly in the case of GREECE. The correct categories (value labels) for Greece are: 01.  up to 2.000 inhabitants; 02.  2.001 - 10.000 inhabitants; 03.  10.001 - 50.000 inhabitants; 04.  50.001 - 1.000.000 inhabitants; 05.  1.000.001 and more inhabitants. Current ZA deliveries contain the correct documentation. The original INRA codebook and SPSS documentation for categories '04' and '05' is erroneous.
    • Starting with Eurobarometer 34 and up to survey 61, NUTS 1 level data (REGION II) for the NETHERLANDS are not (re-)coded
      in accordance with the official EUROSTAT nomenclature of territorial unit statistics. The NUTS 2 level province ZEELAND should be
      coded as belonging to NUTS 1 region (landsdel) WEST instead of SOUTH Netherlands. (ZA editions will be corrected from EB 53 onwards, November 11, 2005)    
    • Data for VOTING BEHAVIOUR IN LAST NATIONAL ELECTIONS are not coded correctly for EAST GERMANY. The original codebook and SPSS documentation was not clear. A correction is possible if referring to the East German field questionnaire. The following recode is proposed: RECODE V237 (51=60) (60=20) (52=30) (62=10) (50=61) (81=50) (61=81). The correct frequency distribution should be: <CDU> 320; <SPD> 171; <FDP> 77 <PDS> 60 <DSU>8; <B-90 / GRUENE> 79; <REPUBLIKANER> 6. Other categories are coded correctly.
