Building on the knowledge of the two previous waves, a new questionnaire was designed, taking into account various new issues which have emerged in several life spheres: solidarity, social capital, democracy, and work ethics. Representative multi-stage random samples of the adult population of the country 18 years old and older were drawn. Face-to-face interviews with a standardized questionnaire were conducted between 1999 and 2001. The surveys were carried out in 33 countries and combined in an Integrated Dataset. The national datasets  including additional country-specific variables are provided for national rather than multinational use.
