IntUne is an integrated project on the theme of European citizenship financed by the European Union. It is conducted within the scope of the Sixth Framework Programme and is coordinated by the University of Siena. The project involves 29 European institutions and over 100 scholars across Eastern and Western Europe. In 2007, the first wave of the mass survey was conducted in 16 European Union Member States and 2 non-European Union Member States. European Union Member States included Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Denmark, Estonia, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia Republic, Slovenia, Spain, and the United Kingdom; non-European Union Member States included Serbia and Turkey. IntUne aims to study changes in the scope, nature, and characteristics of citizenship that result from the process of the deepening and enlargement of the European Union. IntUne focuses on how integration and disintegration processes, at both the national and European level, affect three major dimensions of citizenship: identity, representation, and scope of good governance. Respondents were polled on their level of interest and involvement in politics, their assessment of the general economic situation in their country, and whether they are satisfied with the democratic processes in their country. Survey participants were also asked to rate their degree of trust in government at the regional, national and European Union level. Opinions were gathered concerning the advantages of European Union membership, whether citizens currently living in the European Union would benefit from the accession of Serbia and Turkey, and whether Serbia and Turkey would benefit from becoming European Union Member States. Demographic information includes age, sex, country of birth, education level, employment status, marital status, socioeconomic status, religious affiliation and political party affiliation.

Sample: Please refer to Appendix 9 in the Original P.I. Documentation section of the ICPSR Codebook for sampling information.
Weight: The data contain weight variables W.1, W.2, and W.3. W.1 (Weight result from target) is the national weighting factor to be used for analyses by country; W.2 (Weight Europe 18) is the total weighting factor to be used for analyses on the total. W.3 (Weight extra) is the extrapolated weighting factor and the bases are those of the real population of each country.
Mode of Data Collection: computer-assisted personal interview (CAPI), computer-assisted telephone interview (CATI), paper and pencil interview (PAPI)
Response Rates: Please refer to Appendix 10 in the Original P.I. Documentation section of the ICPSR Codebook for information regarding response rates.
Extent of Processing: ICPSR data undergo a confidentiality review and are altered when necessary to limit the risk of disclosure. ICPSR also routinely creates ready-to-go data files along with setups in the major statistical software formats as well as standard codebooks to accompany the data. In addition to these procedures, ICPSR performed the following processing steps for this data collection:
- Standardized missing values.
- Created online analysis version with question text.
- Checked for undocumented or out-of-range codes.
