New Europe Barometer IV, 1995


Abstract copyright UK Data Service and data collection copyright owner.The New Europe Barometer (NEB) series, originally known as the New Democracies Barometer (NDB), has been conducted annually across Central and Eastern Europe since autumn 1991. The same questions are asked in each country and repeated from year to year, so trends can be analysed across a wide variety of post-Communist societies. Approximately 1,000 respondents in each country are interviewed face-to-face each year about their economic, political and social attitudes and behaviour. Data are available for separate years and also as a trend dataset (SN 5241). Further information on the NEB is available on the CSPP Barometer Surveys web site, along with details of other survey series.

New Europe Barometer IV, 1995 is the fourth study in the series. The survey was conducted in Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Slovenia, Croatia, Belarus and Ukraine in autumn, 1995. In each country a nationwide representative sample was drawn; a total of 10,069 were interviewed face-to-face. The questionnaire employed the standard NEB measures of economic and political behaviour and attitudes, including evaluations of the past, current assessments, and expectations of the future. The questionnaire is only available online and can be assessed from the CSPP web page.
