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 GESIS Data Archive codebooks for deliveries after March 9, 2000.
  • In VOTE INTENTION (V443) and EUROPEAN PARTY PREFERENCE (V478) the data for DENMARK are erroneous. Responses for "Venstre" (70) and "Enhedslisten - De Rod-Gronne" (14) have been exchanged. This also occurs in the original INRA data set. In addition variable V478 is not correctly constructed for France, Denmark, Ireland, Northern Ireland, Greece, and Portugal. GESIS Data Archive deliveries after June 8, 2000 (second GESIS Data Archive edition) are corrected.

  • The OPINION LEADERSHIP INDEX C.1 (V476) has not been constructed correctly in Eurobarometer 47.1. Please recode in accordance with the description of the index in the codebook. GESIS Data Archive deliveries after October 28, 2002 are corrected. 

  • 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. (GESIS Data Archive editions will be corrected from EB 53 onwards, November 11, 2005)
