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 men's and women's work roles in Europe. A number of questions were asked about satisfaction with work and feelings about retirement. The satisfaction of housewives with their work and their possible desire for work outside the home was also explored. Other questions probed the respondents' feelings about men helping with housework and the role of women as active participants in politics. Another major focus of the surveys was attitudes toward the forthcoming European Parliamentary elections. Demographic information for each respondent includes education, occupation, organizational memberships and activities, marital status, age, and sex, as well as occupation of head of household, and composition of household. In addition to the survey itself, the ICPSR version of the study contains constructed indices on materialist/post-materialist values, left-right partisan vote, and cognitive mobilization (an indicator of an individual's potential to take an active role in the political process). Euro-Barometer 8 contains data gathered from representative samples of respondents aged 15 or older interviewed in each of the nine nations of the EC (Germany, Great Britain, Denmark, Italy, France, Belgium, Luxembourg, Ireland, and the Netherlands) in November 1977.
  • Methods

    The data are not weighted, however, there are three weight variable, V5 (EURO-WEIGHTS), V6 (FRENCH WEIGHT VAR), and V7 (UK WEIGHT VAR) that users may wish to use during analysis. For additional information please see the "Original ICPSR Documentation, 1980 Release" in the ICPSR codebook.
  • 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..

Sampled Universe
Citizens of the EC aged 15 and over residing in Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Great Britain, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, and the Netherlands. Smallest Geographic Unit: Country
Sampling
The sampling designs were either multistage national probability samples (Belgium, Denmark, and the Netherlands) or national stratified quota samples (France, Germany, Great Britain [including Northern Ireland], Italy, Ireland, and Luxembourg).
Collection Mode
  • face-to-face interview

    The text of the British questionnaire was used in constructing the codebook.

    The rural population was underrepresented in the French sample. The French weight variable should be used to produce a completely representative sample with respect to the criteria of sex, age, and occupation.
