Data for Undergraduate Political Science Courses: Eurobarometer 64.2, 2005


Abstract copyright UK Data Service and data collection copyright owner.The Data for Undergraduate Political Science Courses datasets have been derived from three major public opinion studies: Eurobarometer 64.2: the European Constitution, Globalization, Energy Resources, and Agricultural Policy, October - November, 2005 (held at the UKDA under SN 5505); British Election Study, 2005 (BES) (held under SNs 5494-5496); and the British Social Attitudes Survey, 2005 (BSA) (held under SN 5618), for the purpose of teaching data analysis to undergraduates in political science. The datasets have been 'cleaned' in order to aid students using data for the first time. Some variables have been removed, many variable names have been changed to enable more substantive meaning to be taken from them, and new codebooks have been created for each of the three derived datasets. Further information may be found on the Development of Undergraduate Curricula in Quantitative Methods project web site, and the ESRC award web page.

Main Topics:

The study includes variables on attitudes to European integration (questions from module A) and some basic demographic variables (questions from module D). The most recent update of the complete Eurobarometer 64.2 study is available for inspection, analysis and download via the GESIS ZACAT online data catalogue: Eurobarometer 64.2: October-November 2005 (ZA No. 4414) The European Constitution, Globalization, Energy Resources, and Agricultural Policy.
