THIRD ITALIAN CONFERENCE OF EVS/WVS DATA USERS

The Italian team of EVS/WVS organizes the conference “Crisis after Crisis: Value Change in Italy” – Third Italian conference of EVS/WVS data users. The conference will take place on 29-30 September 2022, at the University of Bergamo. The conference will also include an international seminar on the study of values in turbolent times.

The focus of theThird Italian Conference of EVS/WVS data users: Since the beginning of the century, Italy has gone through an impressive sequence of crises on a regional as well as global scale. The economic downturn that began in 2008, the refugee crisis in the last decade, the COVID-19 pandemic, the ongoing conflict between Russia and Ukraine, just to mention the main events. Besides the social and economic impacts of the crises, it is essential to study changes and possible impacts on values and attitudes. The conference aims to discuss value change in Italy – also from a comparative perspective by considering different domains – and offer an opportunity for scholars studying the Italian case on the basis of EVS and WVS data to meet.


Call for papers The conference aims to gather methodologically high-quality, theoretically based contributions using EVS and WVS data. Presentations combining EVS, WVS and other data are also welcome. The call asks for a special emphasis on Italy: comparative and longitudinal contributions are encouraged. The conference welcomes presentations on any values domain, as well as methodological contributions.

Joint EVS/WVS 2017-2021 dataset

The European Value Study (EVS) and the World Value Survey (WVS) are two large-scale, cross-national and repeated cross-sectional survey research programs. They include a large number of questions, which have been replicated since the early eighties.

In line with the Memorandum of Understandings, both organizations agreed to cooperate in joint data collection from 2017. EVS has been responsible for planning and conducting surveys in European countries, using the EVS questionnaire and EVS methodological guidelines. WVSA has been responsible for planning and conducting surveys in countries in the world outside Europe, using the WVS questionnaire and WVS methodological guidelines. Five countries (Germany, Romania, Russia, Serbia, and Ukraine) conducted surveys in both waves EVS 2017 and WVS7.

Both organizations developed their draft questionnaires independently. The joint items define the Common Core of both questionnaires. They are marked in yellow in the two Master Questionnaires (EVS2017 MQ and WVS7 MQ).

The EVS archive (GESIS) has been responsible for data archiving and data processing of the European surveys. The WVS archive (JDS Madrid) has been responsible for data archiving and data processing for the non-European surveys and the WVS surveys additionally conducted in Germany, Romania, Russia, Serbia, and Ukraine. Based on the Common EVS/WVS Dictionary agreed by EVS and WVS the Joint EVS/WVS 2017-2021 dataset (Joint EVS/WVS) has been constructed in close collaboration.

The first version of the Joint EVS/WVS includes data and documentation of altogether 81 countries and territories: 35 from the EVS 2017, 51 from the WVS7. Five of these countries (Germany, Romania, Russia, Serbia, and Ukraine) conducted surveys in both waves EVS and WVS.

EVS-WVS Operational meeting

The representatives of the EVS and WVS secretariats and data archives met on Friday 14 August 2020 to agree on the workflows, procedures and standards for data archiving and data release of the joint EVS-WVS core dataset.

The preparation of the joint file is one of the core aspects of the agreement between the European Values Study and the World Values Survey. Thanks to this cooperation, the two organizations will offer the research community a joint product, which is expected to include data from 96 countries.

In May 2020, EVS published the third pre-release of EVS2017, which is available alongside accurate documentation via GESIS Data Archive.

In July 2020, WVS published its 7th wave. WVS provides a provisional EVS-WVS Cross-National dataset, created by merging provisional versions of WVS and EVS files. For any questions arising from the use of this dataset, please contact the WVSA Secretariat.

The jointly release of the EVS-WVS dataset, prepared according to the agreed standards, is expected in October 2020.

Prof. C. Haerpfer, President of WVSA, introduces the operational meeting

Second Italian Conference of EVS-WVS

The joint team of EVS-WVS Italy organized a seminar aimed at presenting research based on previous waves of EVS on the ’68 protest movement and generational values differences.

During the event, Italian team members of EVS, WVS and ESS inform about the development of cross-sectional surveys in Italy. The seminar takes place on 13 December  in Milan.

Collaboration with WVS

The European Values Study and the World Values Survey agreed to collaborate in carrying out the 2017 values survey in Europe as defined in the Memorandum of Understandings (MoU).

A Joint Liaison Committee has been established with the aim of ensuring regular communication and coordination of common activities between the two organizations.

In line with this agreement, both organizations coordinated the questionnaire’s design and the overlap in the two questionnaires is about 70%. In all European countries, the EVS questionnaire is applied, and data collection is coordinated by EVS according to the strict methodological guidelines prepared by EVS Methodology Group that are specifically adapted to the European context.

The MoU also covers issues related to data exchange, cleaning, archiving, integration, embargo (§9). The joint data dissemination and data property are described in details in the document attached to the MoU.

In addition, the representatives of the EVS and WVS secretariats and data archives met on Friday 14 August 2020 to agree on the workflows, procedures and standards for data archiving and data release of the joint EVS-WVS core dataset. Thanks to this cooperation, the two organizations will offer the research community a joint product, which is expected to include data from 96 countries.

In May 2020, EVS published the third pre-release of EVS2017 and on October 20, 2020 EVS published its Full release.

In July 2020, WVS published its 7th wave. WVS provides a provisional EVS-WVS Cross-National, created by merging provisional versions of WVS and EVS files. For any questions arising from the use of this dataset, please contact the WVSA Secretariat.

The joint release of the EVS-WVS dataset, prepared according to the agreed standards, has been published on November 13, 2020 and updated on January 26, 2021.

The EVS community mourns the death of Dr. Olga Balakireva

It is with deep sadness that we learn that Dr. Olga Balakireva passed away after long illness. Dr Balakireva has been the Principal Investigator for Ukraine at the European Values Study and at the World Values Survey for over 25 years. Dr Balakireva has facilitated conducting the very first wave of value studies in Ukraine back in 1996 and supported implementation of both research programs in Ukraine since then. Thanks to her constant support, Ukraine has participated in WVS-EVS survey rounds in 1995-1998, 2000-2004, 2005-2008, 2011-2014 and most recently in 2017-2022.

In addition to her committment to the EVS/WVS survey programmes, Dr Balakireva was president of the Board of the Ukrainia Institute for Social Research, Director of the Center for Social Monitoring, Editor-in-chief of the Ukrainian society Magazine, Head of the Department for Monitoring Research of Socio-Economic Transformations of the Institute of Economics and Forecasting of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine.

Dr Balakireva was an experienced researcher, a dear colleague who will be deeply missed. The EVS community expresses condolences to the family and friends.
