New Europe Barometer V, 1998


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 V, 1998 is the fifth study in the series. The survey was conducted in 1998 in 12 countries: Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Slovenia, Croatia, the Former Yugoslav Republic of Serbia and Montenegro, Belarus, Ukraine and, for comparison with an established democracy, Austria. In each country a nationwide representative sample was drawn; a total of 12,362 persons were interviewed. In addition to standard NEB measures of economic and political behaviour and social conditions, the survey includes additional questions on corruption and trust, attitudes to the European Union, and health.
