Awareness and Importance of Maastricht and the future of the European Community

Special Topics:

  • Attitudes towards the European Unification and the Single Market

  • Attitudes towards immigrants

Documents and Data:


  • Concurrent with Eurobarometer 37.0 a few trend questions were also asked in an international INRA (EUROPE) omnibus survey for the EFTA countries and the Baltics. These data were merged into the European Integration Survey 1992 (ZA Study 2345).
  • 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.
    • REGION II (NUTS I) is not correctly coded for FRANCE. The French region Corse, coded '22' in REGION I (V659), should be coded '8' (Mediterranee) in REGION II (V660). Corrected for ZA deliveries after March 16, 1999.
    • 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) 
    • INCOME HH (V649) categories are not correctly documented in the codebook for FRANCE. The correct categories are: 01.  Less than 4.000 FF; 02.   4.000-4.999 FF; 03.  5.000-5.499 FF; 04.  5.500-5.999 FF; 05.  6.000-6.999 FF; 06.  7.000-7.999 FF; 07;   8.000-8.999 FF; 08.  9.000-9.999 FF; 09.  10.000-10.999 FF; 10.  11.000-12.499 FF; 11.  12.500-14.999 FF; 12.  15.000 FF and more.  Corrected ZA codebook deliveries after November 23, 1999.
