Description
  • Abstract

    This round of Euro-Barometer surveys queried respondents on standard Euro-Barometer measures, such as how satisfied they were with their present life, whether they attempted to persuade others close to them to share their views on subjects they held strong opinions about, whether they discussed political matters, what their country's goals should be for the next ten years, and how they viewed the need for societal change. Additional questions focused on the respondents' knowledge of and opinions on the European Community (EC), including how well-informed they felt about the EC, what sources of information about the EC they used, whether their country had benefited from being an EC member, and the extent of their personal interest in EC matters. Another major focus of the surveys was regional development and integration. Respondents were asked questions about regional development within the EC and preferences for political and military ties with the United States, NATO, and the Eastern European bloc. Questions on the inclusion of Greece, Spain, and Portugal in the EC were also asked. Demographic information about the respondents includes age, sex, financial situation, age at completion of education, number of persons and children living in respondent's home, occupation, language spoken, religion, family income, marital status, age upon completion of full-time education, occupation of head of household, composition of household, number of people working at respondent's workplace, objective and subjective size of town, and region and province of interview. Indices are included as created by the original investigators. Euro-Barometer 13 contains data gathered from representative samples of respondents who were interviewed in each of the nine nations of the EC (Germany, Great Britain, Denmark, Italy, France, Belgium, Luxembourg, Ireland, and the Netherlands) in April 1980.
  • Methods

  • Methods

    ICPSR data undergo a confidentiality review and are altered when necessary to limit the risk of disclosure. ICPSR also routinely creates ready-to-go data files along with setups in the major statistical software formats as well as standard codebooks to accompany the data. In addition to these procedures, ICPSR performed the following processing steps for this data collection: Performed consistency checks.; Standardized missing values.; Checked for undocumented or out-of-range codes..
