The Central and Eastern Eurobarometer (CEEB) survey series was carried out on behalf of the European Commission (DG X) between 1990 and 1997 under the direction of Karlheinz Reif (until 1995) and George Cunningham. Administered once per year, the CEEB surveys monitored economic and political change and attitudes toward Europe and the European Union in countries of the region, including Albania, Armenia, Belarus, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czechoslovakia/Czech Republic, Estonia, GDR/Eastern Germany, Georgia, Hungary, Kazakhstan, Latvia, Lithuania, Macedonia/FYROM, Moldova, Poland, Romania, European Russia/Russian Federation, Slovakia, Slovenia, Ukraine, and Yugoslavia. This data collection was compiled from the original eight CEEB surveys and consists of 280 selected trend variables (including some demographic and technical variables) representing 49 trend questions. Trend variables were chosen through an iterative selection process that started with the European Commission's definition of "Trend" questions and included variables that already had been asked in the past surveys at least three times (years) in identical or similar wording. Harmonization of some of these variables was necessary. The general scope of the information gathered pertained to attitudes toward the European Commission, current political and economic questions of the country, and evaluation of democratic and economic reforms. Specific topics included judgment on the general political and economic development of the country, expected development of the economic situation, judgment on one's own financial situation, attitude to the market economy, frequency of political discussions, judgment on economic reforms, satisfaction with democracy, human rights, feeling like a European, attitude to European unification, most important source of information about the EC, EU membership, desired point in time for the country to join the EC, NATO membership, benefits of EU relationship, and left-right self placement. Background variables include age, education level, occupation, right to vote, voting intention, party voted for, size of household, income, national background, native language, region, and size of community.
