Eurobarometer data service at ICPSR

Since the mid 1970s (906 KB) and until 1992 the Eurobarometer data processing and variable documentation on part of the social science data archives was handled by ICPSR. This applies to Standard and Special Eurobarometer up to wave 33. With the subsequent commencement of a cooperative agreement between ICPSR and GESIS (at that time GESIS-ZA, Zentralarchiv für Empirische Sozialforschung) responsibilties were shared. Both archives are providing identical data sets, notwithstanding different archive study identification numbers.

At ICPSR member institutions Standard and Special Eurobarometer, Candidate Countries and Central & Eastern Eurobarometer are available online through ICPSR DIRECT. For more information on Eurobarometer data access at ICPSR member institutions you might contact your local official representative or ICPSR directly:

Eurobarometer mailing list

ICPSR (Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research) and GESIS are maintaining a mailing list, EUROBAROMETER, in order to provide a venue for researchers to interact with each other and to increase communication between the archives and the Eurobarometer user community. The Mailing List is not moderated and its value depends on the use made of it by the participants. In particular Eurobarometer related archive news is regularly circulated through the list, e.g. annoucements on new data releases.

You can easily subscribe, unsubscribe, or browse list archives through a web form:

If you prefer, you may also still subscribe the "old fashioned way" sending email to

Once you are a member of this mailing list, you will receive all messages sent to the list and be able to respond if you wish. You may write or respond to every participant on EUROBAROMETER by using the following address:

Remember, any such message goes to everyone on the list! If you want to send a private message, simply use the normal e-mail procedures. If you want to respond individually to a message that has gone out to everyone on the list, you will need to manually change the return address so that it is directed to that individual. By default replies go to everyone.
