THE WEB SITE IS MOVING!

A new EES website is under construction at the University of Mannheim (a much more suitable location). At present most material relating to past EESs is duplicated on both sites, but the Mannheim site contains current information about the 2004 EES and, over time, its other contents will also diverge from those held here.

This website will not be further updated after the end of 2004.

Elections to the European Parliament are held every five years. These elections are conducted in a co-ordinated fashion by universal suffrage throughout the countries of the European Union (or its predecessor entities the European Community and the European Economic Community) and were held in June of 1979, 1984, 1989, 1994 and 1999. At each of these elections, except for those of 1984, the academic community has fielded surveys of voters in all the countries that took part. This web site gives access to materials describing these surveys and the studies of which they formed part, and to the findings of these studies. Although no academic survey was fielded to study the European Elections of 1984, relevant questions were included in the Fall 1984 Eurobarometer which is thus also included in the following list.

Further details regarding the election studies can be found at:

For data availability see under 'research design'.

Funding for each study is gratefully acknowledged in 'research design' sections of the detailed description of each study.
