In 2011, we launched a new series of ESS Topline Findings, which are concise cross-national summaries of particular topics covered in the questionnaire. Number 1 in the series focuses on trust in justice using data from Round 5 of the survey. Number 2 focuses on welfare attitudes in Europe using data from Round 4 of the survey. Number 3 focuses on the economic crisis, quality of work and social integration using data from Rounds 2 and 5 of the ESS. Number 4 focuses on Europeans' understandings and evaluations of democracy using data from Round 6 of the ESS.
