New Europe Barometer I, 1991-1992


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 I, 1991-1992 is the first study in the series. The survey was conducted between November 1991 and January 1992 in the following countries: Bulgaria, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Slovenia and, for comparison with a democratic market system, Austria. Respondents were interviewed about household and national economic conditions; evaluations of the new regime and the old Communist regime and social and demographic characteristics.
