This data collection contains cumulative attitudinal and demographic variables, in comparable form, selected from EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES STUDIES, 1973 (ICPSR 7330) and EURO-BAROMETER 3 through EURO-BAROMETER 21 (ICPSR 7416, 7417, 7418, 7511, 7512, 7604, 7727, 7728, 7752, 7778, 7957, 7958, 7959, 9022, 9023, 9057, 8152, 8234, and 8263). The questions selected were asked in at least four surveys and in many cases were asked in nearly all of the 20 individual surveys. This allows the user to run cumulative or longitudinal analyses using the year of the survey as a variable. Some of the attitudinal variables selected from the individual studies are: the respondent's overall life satisfaction, amount of social change desired, left/right political orientation, support of the Common Market, strength of religious attachment, and the political party for which the respondent would vote. Other variables provide information on respondents' views toward nuclear power, income equality, terrorism, military defense, and pollution. Cumulative demographic information includes age, sex, marital status, household composition, occupation, religion, income quartiles, age at which the respondent left school, town size, and region. Three indices constructed by the principal investigators -- cognitive mobilization, materialist/post-materialist values, and left/center/right vote -- are also included. The surveys were conducted on representative samples of respondents who were interviewed in the ten nations of the EC: Germany, Great Britain, Denmark, Italy, France, Belgium, Luxembourg, Ireland, the Netherlands, and Greece.
