European Social Survey

The European Social Survey measures the attitudes, beliefs and behaviour patterns of diverse populations in more than 25 countries. Every two years, face-to-face interviews are conducted with newly selected, cross-sectional samples. The objective of the study is to offer researchers, policy makers and the public the highest quality survey data that is comparable across countries and time.

More than 3,000 households were selected to take part in the study in Ireland. This sample was selected by scientific methods to ensure that we get a representative picture of people living in the country.

The Irish fieldwork has begun in October 2018. Interviewers from the survey organisation Behaviour&Attitudes will contact each of the selected households within the next few months.

The results of the survey will be published at the beginning of 2020.
