European Social Survey

The Social Science Research Institute of the University of Iceland together with a group of experts in the field of social sciences are currently conducting a European survey of the attitudes, values and behavior of people in Iceland.
The survey covers a random sample of almost 3,000 people from the entire country, aged 15 and over.
The survey is called the European Social Survey (ESS) and is conducted in over 30 European countries. One of its goals is to shed light on societal issues and provide the results with a unique opportunity to assess the behavior and attitudes of Icelanders and those who live here, i.a. to health, trust and social relations compared to other countries.
