Abstract

The survey studied several themes, including the use of media, social trust, political participation and interest, political trust, political orientation and commitment, satisfaction with own circumstances and certain public services, perceptions of own well-being, religious views, experiences of discrimination, and national and ethnic identity. These themes are recurring in different ESS rounds.

Themes for the rotating modules in this first collection round included attitudes towards and knowledge of immigration, asylum seekers and immigration policy as well as participation in voluntary organisations, social relationships and networks, and working life.

The self-administered follow-up questionnaire included the Schwartz Human Values Scale as well as test questions controlling the main questionnaire. Questions about income disparity and wages were also asked.

The respondents' socio-demographics were widely charted, including, among others, household composition, gender, age, type of neighbourhood, education, occupation, background information on spouse and parents, trade union membership and marital status.
