  • Abstract

    We conducted a second original survey of Icelandic public opinion following the “Icesave 2” referendum held on April 9, 2011. Topics include referendum voting behavior; subjective economic status/concerns; national versus European identity; attitudes towards other countries and the European Union (EU); general questions about political interest, knowledge, ideology, party affiliation, government approval, etc.; and sociodemographics.

    The survey was administered April 10-26, 2011 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. SSRI attempted to contact 1,200 individuals between the ages of 18-75; 785 respondents agreed to participate. 634 of the 785 respondents were repeat panelists who had participated in our first-wave survey conducted after Iceland’s initial ‘Icesave’ referendum in March 2010 [see Iceland Survey Round 1 (2010)]; the remaining 151 ‘refresher’ respondents were drawn from a new random sample of the electorate.
