Young Europeans

Special Topics:

  • Young Europeans: personal life situation, organizational membership and activities, attitudes towards social problems, attitudes towards different/foreign people, employment issues, working/studying abroad 
  • Knowledge of foreign languages

Documents and Data:


  • Youth sample 47.2 + youth OVeRsample (respondents aged 15 to 24)
  • 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".
    • Please notice that differing from other Eurobarometer surveys WEIGHT RESULT FROM TARGET (V9), WEIGHT AJUSTED TO STANDARD SIZE (V10), and WEIGHT SPECIAL GERMANY (V12) do all include the United Kingdom weighting factor, i.e. separate
      analysis for Northern Ireland in Eurobarometer 44.2OVR is limited to unweighted data.
    • 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)
