Past European Elections Studies

Elections to the European Parliament are held every five years. These elections are conducted in a co-ordinated fashion by universal suffrage throughout the countries of the European Union (or its predecessor entities the European Community and the European Economic Community) and were held in June of 1979, 1984, 1989, 1994, 1999, and 2004. At each of these elections, except for those of 1984, the academic community has fielded surveys of voters in all the countries that took part (except for Malta in 2004). While the PIREDEU website provides a general overview on and links to resources from these past studies, the EES website gives access to further materials describing these surveys and the studies of which they formed part, and to the findings of these studies. Although no academic survey was fielded to study the European Elections of 1984, relevant questions were included in the Fall 1984 Eurobarometer.
