The European Social Survey, ESS Round 5 - 2010
Description - The European Social Survey (ESS) is an academically-driven multi-country survey, which has been administered in over 30 countries to date. It has three aims - First, to monitor and interpret changing public attitudes and values within Europe and to investigate how they interact with Europe's changing institutions; Second, to advance and consolidate improved methods of cross-national survey measurement in Europe and beyond; and third, to develop a series of European social indicators, including attitudinal indicators. This fifth round of the survey covers 28 countries, which includes Belgium, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Israel, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Russian Federation, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and United Kingdom.The questionnaire includes two main sections, each consisting of approximately 120 items; a 'core' module which remains relatively constant from round to round, plus two or more 'rotating' modules, repeated at intervals. The core module aims to monitor change and continuity in a wide range of social variables, including media use; social and public trust; political interest and participation; socio-political orientations; governance and efficacy; moral; political and social values; social exclusion, national, ethnic and religious allegiances; well-being; health and security; human values; demographics and socio-economics.
