Documents and Data:

Remarks:

  • Current archive dataset version / update: v1.1.0 (2012)
  • Errata: 
    • 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)        

    • VOTE INTENTION (D4) categories for Denmark are shifted in the original INRA codebook and SPSS data set. : Category '8' should be "Venstre" instead of "Demokratisk Fornyels" (not asked in EB 49), category '9' should be "Fremskridtspartiet" instead of "Venstre" and category '10' "Enhedslisten - De Rod-Gronne" instead of "Fremskridtspartiet". Accordingly the correct frequencies for Denmark are as follows:

    • SPSS data sets delivered by GESIS Data Archive after November 30, 2000 have been corrected. Nevertheless categories '12' to '16' are not well documented; these data should only be used with caution.
       
    • Q.71.1 / V390 HEALTH CARE: BASIC SERVICE EVERYONE: Plausibility checks suggest that the scale (1) agree strongly to (5) disagree strongly is inverted in the case of the NETHERLANDS. This applies to the original data (as provided by the data producer) as well as to all hitherto available archive editions or releases. (2011-05-02).
