After the fall of the "iron curtain", between 1990 and 1997, this survey programme, conducted on the behalf of the European Commision, has been monitoring economic and political changes, as well as attitudes towards Europe and the European Union in Central and Eastern Europe.
For this purpose, representative national samples have annually been drawn in up to 20 countries of the region, covering future applicant or candidate countries and selected former Soviet Republics (CIS). Respondents were interviewed face-to-face in the respective national language.
The main CEEB results are published in official survey reports.
The data received from the principal investigator are checked and formatted in accordance with archival standards. The single country data sets of the first 4 waves have been processed and integrated by the Archive, kindly supported by the former Center for European Surveys and Studies (ZEUS), University of Mannheim.

The COUNTRY WEIGHT (V280) is not available for all countries and for some it excludes a large number of respondents from calculation. The user is recommended not to weight CEEB 3 data or at least carefully compare the results for weighted and unweighted data.
