Round 9 Multilevel Data published


The Multilevel Data resource has now been updated to include externally collected data applicable to European Social Survey (ESS) Round 9 (2018/19) data.

It means that contextual data on crime, demography, the economy, education, health, immigration and political institutions can now be downloaded and linked to our latest dataset.

The data is available at regional level - ESS regions are created by combining data from different NUTS-levels.

This information has been collated by a number of organisations including EurostatOECD, the United NationsUNESCOWorld Bank and the World Health Organization.

Further data is supplied by Bertelsmann Stiftung, the CIRI Human Rights ProjectDatabase of Political Institutions (World Bank), Democracy BarometerFreedom HouseComparative Political Data Set and Transparency International.

This data is now available through the Multilevel Data resource.

Since Round 4 (2008/09) of our survey, similar contextual data is available, and can be downloaded with previous datasets.

Migrant Integration Policy Index (MIPEX) data was also included in the Multilevel Data resource to accompany our immigration data collected in Round 7 (2014/15).

The resource contains data about a) individuals (ESS respondents) b) regions and c) countries. It is designed to facilitate the task of adding external contextual data on countries and regions to ESS data.

All our survey data can be merged with the alongside the externally sourced data in SPSS, Stata and SAS formats.

Our Multilevel Data tool was partly funded by the Descartes Research Prize awarded to the ESS in 2005.
