CESSDA’s Podcast on EVS data
CESSDA’s podcast series offers an episode dedicated to the Eutopean Values Study data, available also throught the CESSDA Catalogue.
The CESSDA podcast series explores the important world of data archiving and sharing and our researchers across disciplines and countries are benefitting from the CESSDA Data Catalogue. This CESSDA podcast zooms in on the role of the European Values Study in sociology, political science and civil society, with insights from Prof. Ruud Luijkx, Tilburg University and Chair of the Methodology Study. The European Values Studies is a repeated, large-scale, cross-section survey research programme yielding insights into the ideas, beliefs, attitudes, preferences, values and opinions of citizens all over Europe.
Prof. Luijkx highlights evolving values in Europe since the early 1980s in what can be described as a “silent revolution” across the generations bringing implicit changes in attitudes and ideas. The European Values Study is an ideal starting point for understanding differences between the surveyed countries at any point in time, with researchers sharing more detailed information in publications. The datasets from the combined World and European Values Studies are a joint asset in the CESSDA Data Catalogue, which gives researchers direct access to all this insightful data without having to navigate across all the archives.
