Note
Question module QA ‘Humanitarian Aid’ is partly based on questions asked in the context of the corresponding module surveyed in the framework of Eurobarometer 83.2 (ZA5965). Question module QB ‘Civil Protection’ is partly based on questions asked in the context of the corresponding module surveyed in the framework of Eurobarometer 83.2 (ZA5965). Question module QC ‘EU Citizens’ views on Development, Cooperation and Aid´ is partly based on questions asked in the context of the corresponding module surveyed in the framework of Eurobarometer 84.4 (ZA6644). Question module QD ‘Chemical Safety’ is partly based on questions asked in the context of Flash Eurobarometer 361 (ZA5879). Module QD had been made available starting with dataset version v2-0-0 (embargo update). 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. Variable uniqid was corrected in dataset version v3-0-0 for the erroneous coding of Belgium. Please note that three respondents from Northern Ireland give substantial answers in qc5_1 to qc5_5 (‘HELPING DEVELOPING COUNTRIES’) and at the same time are coded 1 (‘You are not involved in helping developing countries’) in qc5_6. Questionnaire item D62_3 (Internet use on mobile device) was not actually presented to the respondents. D62_4 in the questionnaires is displayed as D62_3 in the data set. The end-of-fieldwork dates implied by the values in protocol variable p1 (date of interview) differ slightly from those indicated in the technical specifications provided by TNS for Germany and Poland. Language of interview variable p13lu for Luxembourg has been corrected in dataset version v3-0-0 (categories 2 and 3 had been exchanged in former versions). No data are available for protocol items p8 (postal code), p9 (sample point number), p10 (interviewer number) and p11.
