The adult population aged 18 years and over, with access to a landline telephone in eight countries: Germany, France, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, the United Kingdom (excluding Northern Ireland), Canada, and the United States. Smallest Geographic Unit: country
Computer Assisted Telephone Interviews. The basic sample design applied in all states is multi-stage random (probability). In each household, the respondent was drawn at random (following the "closest birthday rule"). Up to 5 call-backs for telephone interviews and 4 visits in total for face-to-face interviews were attempted before dropping a potential respondent.
Collection Mode
  • computer-assisted telephone interview (CATI)

    The original data collection was carried out by TNS Fait et and Opinion - Brussels, on request of the German Marshall Fund of the United States.

    Indirect Identifiers: To limit possible disclosure risk, the time of interview variables P2A_1, P2A_2, P2B_1, and P2B_2 have been dropped from the public-use data.

    Split Ballot: A split ballot was used for one or more questions in this survey. The variables SPLIT1, SPLIT3, SPLIT4, and SPLIT5 define the separate groups. Of note, for questions Q7a and Q7b, two split variables (SPLIT2 and Q7_SPLIT) are available to define the separate groups.
