Note
Question module QA ‘One year to go to the European elections 2019’ was implemented on behalf of and financed by the European Parliament. It partly replicates questions formerly asked in the Special Eurobarometers 88.1 [ZA6925] and 87.1 [ZA6861] and introduces many new questions. No data are available for protocol items p8 (postal code), p9 (sample point number), p10 (interviewer number) and p11. Starting with Eurobarometer 89.2 no separate sample is drawn for Northern Ireland, which is now covered by the sample for the United Kingdom. Accordingly, the formerly available weight variable w4 “WEIGHT UNITED KINGDOM” is obsolete and no longer included in the dataset. Questions qa5 to qa7 are not part of the basic and national questionnaires and have not been part of the dataset delivery. These questions are also not presented in the report and table volumes.
