The European Social Survey (ESS) is a European survey covering over 30 nations. Its twin aims are: first, it wants to monitor and interpret the changes in attitudes and values of European citizens and investigate how they interact with the constantly evolving European institutions; second, the survey aims to improve and consolidate methods for cross-national surveys in Europe and beyond. The project is funded by the European Commission (inside the 5th Framework Programme), the European Science Foundation and academic funding bodies in each participating country, and it is designed and carried out to exceptionally high standards.

The Round 5 questionnaire is divided into different sections:

  • Use of mass media (television, radio, press and Internet, use of the media to be informed about politics and current affairs) and trust in the neighbour
  • Politics, including: interest in politics, trust in politicians and institutions, participation to electoral vote, political participation, opinions on government and public services provided by the State, socio-political assessments/attitudes; Immigration and political asylum, including: attitudes, perceptions, preferences and knowledge of policies on immigration
  • Subjective well-being (including personal safety and health) and social exclusion; religion (religious affiliation, attendance at religious services); perceived discrimination, national and ethnic identity
  • Personal and social well-being, helping others, feelings in the last week, life satisfaction, satisfaction with work
  • Socio-demographic profile, including: composition of the family; sex, age, place of residence, education and employment of the respondent, partner and parents; household situation and income, civil status
  • Questions about human values (Shalom Schwarz scale)
