Standard Eurobarometer public opinion surveys are carried out on behalf of the European Commission at least 2 times a year in all member nations of the European Union and can be regarded as a unique programme of cross-national and cross-temporal comparative social research. Since the early 1970's representative national samples in all European Union (European Community) member countries are simultaneously interviewed in each spring and each autumn.
The Eurobarometer survey series monitors attitudes toward the European Union amongst member states, as well as other social topics. This site hosted by GESIS provides codebook searches and other information. UK academic users should order datasets through the Economic and Social Data Service (ESDS), which hosts the catalogue of the Data Archive.
