- Eurobarometer is the most widely used source of data on public opinion in the European Union. Produced by the European Commission's DG for Education and Culture, the Public Opinion Analysis Web site includes many current downloadable reports (in PDF format) with data as recent as the current month. Qualitative and quantitative data, gathered with a variety of instruments, are provided on topics ranging from attitudes about the euro to attitudes in the candidate countries, and many other topics as well.
- The European Elections Studies project reports on voter attitudes on the elections (every five years) of the Members of European Parliament. This independent, academic-driven project generates voter surveys in all countries that have participated in each election, with the first study in 1979 and then from 1989 onwards. This Web resource includes each of the election studies, samples of the survey instruments used, useful links, a list of related publications, and more.
- The University of California Berkeley Library has a very useful on-line index of Public Opinion Sources. It is organized by public opinion sources on the national, state, and international levels and includes periodical sources, indexed and databases, Internet resources, and related references.
- Market & Opinion Research International (MORI) in the UK offers qualitative and quantitative survey data gathered from a wide range of audiences, including the general public, business audiences, employees, stakeholders and opinion leaders, and usually (but not exclusively) in the UK. Their Europe Index provides data from dozens of surveys going back to 1996 on attitudes toward the EU, monetary union, and the euro.
- The German Social Science Infrastructure Service has a deeply developed set of Web pages on the Eurobarometer, including guides, trends, special topics, news, links, how to order data and other reports, and much more. Based at key German universities, they are the central archive for Eurobarometer data and supporting materials. Most of the site is available in English. Start here: GESIS.
