New Europe Barometer II, 1992-1993


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 II, 1992-1993 is the second study in the series. The survey involved nationally representative sample surveys in ten countries: Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Slovenia, Croatia, Belarus and Ukraine. A total of 10,160 persons were interviewed in the period November 1992 to March 1993. The questionnaire covered standard NEB questions about the family's economic situation and evaluation of the national economy in the past, present and future; evaluations of new democratic institutions and alternatives to democracy; and social and demographic data. A number of new questions were introduced abut social welfare.
