EUROPEAN SOCIAL SURVEY 5

EUROPEAN SOCIAL SURVEY 5

The ESS is a biennial research project designed to map and explain the interaction between European institutions and change in attitudes, beliefs and behaviors of european populations, in a comparative and longitudinal perspective.

The project implementation is ensured by a consortium composed by Instituto de Ciências Sociais (Univ. of Lisbon) and the Instituto Superior de Ciências do Trabalho e da Empresa (Lisbon University Institute). Jorge Vala is the National Coordinator.

For more details see http://www.atitudessociais.org/

At the central level the ESS is funded by European Science Foundation and the European Commission. In Portugal, the project has been funded by the Foundation for Science and Technology (FCT) and by the Instituto de Ciências Sociais.

The questionnaire is applied to representative and probabilistic samples of the population of participating countries. The universe is made up of residents, with 15 or more years, regardless of their nationality or legal status. The questionnaire consists of a fixed module and two or three rotating modules. The fixed module aims to measure continuities and changes in the following areas:

- Media audience and internet usage

- Political attitudes and engagement

- Interpersonal and institutional trust

- Well-being, health and security

- Social values

- Socio-demographic data

The rotating modules from previous rounds were the following:

ESS 1 Immigration; Citizenship

ESS 2 Family and work; Health and care seeking

ESS 3 Personal and social well-being; Perception of the life course

ESS 4 Welfare attitudes; Experiences and expression of ageism

ESS 5 Work, Family and Well-being; Trust in criminal justice

The data produced under this project is available through the following websites: http://www.atitudessociais.org/; http://ess.nsd.uib.no/. Presently, the team is advancing on the analysis of ESS4 data and preparing the collection of interviews of the fifth round.

Data from the ESS was the empirical support to the following publications by members of the research team:

Objectivos: 
<p>The rotating modules of ESS 5 have the following specific objectives:</p><p>- Work, Family and Well-being: The Implications of Economic Recession</p><p>This module corresponds to the replication of the module implemented in 2004. Given the very different institutional contexts of EU member states, it will provide crucial insights into the extent to which different types of employment and welfare regime are able to mediate the impact of economic crisis. </p><p>- Trust in Criminal Justice: A Comparative European Analysis</p><p>The module will capture information on trust, legitimacy, cooperation and compliance in relation to criminal justice. It will also test theories of institutional legitimacy.</p>
