Note
Question module QA on ´Development, Cooperation and Aid´ largely replicates questions formerly asked in the framework of Eurobarometer 82.1. Question module QB on ´Animal Welfare´ is partly based on the corresponding module surveyed in the framework of Eurobarometer 66.1. Question module QC on ´Tobacco Black Market´ is newly introduced. Question module QD on “Nature based solutions” is newly introduced, and available starting with version v3-0-0 (embargo update). Data for protocol variables p8 (postal code), p9 (sample point number) and p10 (interviewer number) have not been made available. Starting with Eurobarometer 81.3 (with 84.1 for Germany), the category scheme for country specific protocol variables P6 (SIZE OF COMMUNITY) has changed considerably. Categories for all countries have been harmonized among each other to three values (Rural area - Towns and suburbs/small urban area - Cities/large urban areas). Starting with Eurobarometer 81.3 the category scheme for country specific protocol variables P7 (REGION) has changed for some countries, in particular introducing NUTS categories for Ireland, Estonia, and Croatia. Please note abnormal frequency distributions due to fieldwork irregularities for the Region variable for Austria (p7at, p7at_r), in particular for Vorarlberg. While the number of cases for Vorarlberg hovers between 46 (4,4% if based on weighted data) in Eurobarometer 84.1 and 44 (4,4% if based on weighted data) in Eurobarometer 84.3, due to fieldwork irregularities there are only three cases for Vorarlberg in Eurobarometer 84.4 (0,3% if based on weighted data). This is not the proportion expected for this NUTS2 region. In the course of a new dataset delivery from TNS the REGION variable for Romania has been corrected for an abnormal frequency distribution in version v2-0-0. Please note that the number of cases changed for the regions “Sud-Est (South-East)” and “Bucuresti –Ilfov (Bucharest)“ in variable p7ro: 80 former cases from “Sud-Est (South-East)” are now coded “Bucuresti -Ilfov (Bucharest)“. Accordingly the number of cases also changed for the regions “Macroregion 2” and “Macroregion 3” in variable p7ro_r. As a consequence of this data correction weights referring to Romania have been modified. Please note that official reports and tables may be based on former weights and slight deviations to the current dataset results can exist.
