The sixth New Europe Barometer (NEB) survey, conducted in 2001, covered the ten post-communist countries then actively negotiating entry to the European Union: Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Slovakia and Slovenia. Several questions are covered in the survey. How do respondents evaluate their new regime and compare it to the past, and what are their expectations for the future? How committed are people to the rejection of undemocratic alternatives? How do respondents evaluate their national economic conditions and those of their household in terms of the past, present and future expectations? What are the priority of identities of individuals, ranging from local to European? NEB surveys ask the same questions in all countries covered. For 2001, the results were merged into a single multinational data file, with each country's responses weighted equally at 1,000. The multinational data file encourages research that considers the extent to which causes of division within society, for example education, age or economic status, operate transnationally. It is possible to assess to what extent and under what circumstances national context is an important influence on behaviour and attitudes (net of individual attributes), and to test the importance of absolute standards of living, which are measured cross-nationally by a household's material possessions, as against relative income advantage or disadvantage.
