  • Abstract

    We conducted an original survey of Icelandic public opinion following the first “Icesave” referendum held on March 6, 2010. Topics include voting behavior in both the referendum and prior general election; subjective economic status/concerns; national versus European identity; attitudes towards other countries and the European Union (EU); media usage; general questions about political interest, knowledge, ideology, party affiliation, government approval, etc.; and sociodemographics.

    The survey was administered by the Social Science Research Institute (SSRI) of the University of Iceland via computer-assisted telephone interviews to a nationally representative sample of adults 18 years or older drawn from the Icelandic national register. Given the lopsided nature of the referendum outcome (fewer than 2% voted yes), we asked SSRI to oversample the yes votes. They telephoned 1505 individuals, of which 877 agreed to participate.
