Eurobarometer - EU Public Opinion Surveys

 


Data description

Eurobarometer is a series of multi-topic, pan-European surveys undertaken for the European Commission since 1970 on attitudes towards European integration, institutions, policies, social conditions, health, culture, the economy, citizenship, security, information technology, the environment and other topics.

The European Commission maintains the Eurobarometer overview page.

Standard and Special Eurobarometer surveys consist of regular face-to-face interviews with approximately 1,000 subjects in the EU member states.

In addition to online files, the Library makes available three Eurobarometer DVDs:

  • Eurobarometer 1970-2014 [PN0001]
  • Candidate Countries Eurobarometer 2001-2004 [PN0004]
  • Central Eastern Eurobarometer 1990-1997 Trends CEEB 1-8 [PN0003].
