European Election Studies 1979

This study consisted of set of questions added to the post-election (November) 1979 regular Eurobarometer (Rabier), linked to a campaign study (Reif), an elite study (Schmitt) and a study of the media in several countries (Blumler).

The elite survey data ("European Political Parties' Middle Level Elites Project [EPPMLE]") are available from the Zentralarchiv fuer Empirische Sozialforschung, now GESIS-ZA.
