It is Eurofound policy to make the questionnaires and datasets freely available to the public. Questionnaires are made available upon completion of the survey fieldwork. Survey datasets are made available no later than two years after fieldwork completion.
The latest available questionnaires are:
- European Quality of Life Survey (EQLS) 2016 - See also the various language versions
- European Working Conditions Survey (EWCS) 2015 - See also the various language versions
- European Company Survey (ECS) 2013
Links to the questionnaires for earlier editions of the survey can be found on the pages for the specific survey waves.
The Eurofound datasets and accompanying materials are stored with the UK Data Service in Essex, UK and promoted online via their website. For access please see http://discover.ukdataservice.ac.uk/.
The data is available free of charge to all those who intend to use it for non-commercial purposes. Requests for use for commercial purposes will be forwarded to Eurofound for authorisation.
In order to download the data, you must register with the UK Data Service via their website. If you are not from a UK university or college please request a UKDS user name at http://www.data-archive.ac.uk/sign-up/credentials-application or consult the page on how to access data.
