European Election Study 1994 - EES'94

The European Election Study 1994 is a survey study of the electorates of the member states of the European Community. It focuses in particular on the fourth election of the European Parliament, which was conducted in June 1994. The study essentially consists of a survey conducted immediately after the European Parliament Election of June 1994. Variables of three other surveys, surrounding Eurobarometer surveys, are documented and included in addition. The first two of these (Eurobarometers 40 and 41) took place before the European elections, in October-November 1993 and April-May 1994 respectively. The third (Eurobarometer 42) was conducted in November-December 1994. While the main wave is the postelectoral survey, the other three interviews have partially overlapping contents. Some of the questions have been included in two, a few in three or all four of the interviews.
