Eurobarometer 35A     March - April 1991     ZA No.  2033

Working Conditions (selected questions 35.0 + 35.1)

Special Topics:

  • Attitudes towards health and safety at work

Documents and Data:


  • Eurobarometer 35A presents the attitudes of a subset of respondents, who were actively employed and who participated in the surveys 35.0 and 35.1. The original question wording is available in the framework of the 35.0 or 35.1 questionnaires.
  • Current archive dataset version / update: v1.0.1 (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.
