The first pre-release of EVS2017 is now available.
As for the other waves, EVS data is archived at the Data Archive for Social Sciences at GESIS – Leibniz Institute for Social Sciences, Cologne.
The goal of the EVS Pre-Releases is to make the current data of the European Values Study, which back in the field since September 2017, quickly available for research. They are lean products created by the research group at Tilburg University, theparticipating countries and the GESIS data archive. The data is based on thequestions of the Master Questionnaire but does not yet include all harmonizedand derived variables. The documentation provides information on the creationand processing of national data, but still in a compact format.
The first version of the integrated dataset contains data from 16 countries (Armenia, Bulgaria, Germany, Georgia, Iceland, Croatia, Netherlands, Austria, Poland, Russia, Switzerland, Slovak Republic, Slovenia, Spain, Czech Republic, Belarus). More than 22.000 persons, selected through random sampling, were interviewed personally (face-to-face).
Here you can find data and documentation.
