Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses technical information about European Values Studies (EVS). The Values Studies have been carried out in 1981? 1984, 1989?1993, 1995?97 and 1999?2004. Suggestions were solicited from participants through out the world, and expert groups developed the questionnaires used in the subsequent waves, giving particular attention to issues of comparability between and across countries, and allowing longitudinal analyses. In most countries, some form of stratified multistage random sampling was used to obtain representative national samples. Representative national samples of each country?s public were interviewed using uniformly structured questionnaires. The following characteristics were used to construct the weighting factor in various countries: nationality, region, the urban/rural divide, town size, household size, sex, age, occupation, education, marital status, and economic activity. Survey organizations, fieldwork dates, sample sizes and the principal investigators for each wave and each country are shown.

Keywords: European values studies (EVS); questionnaire development; sampling procedures
