Abstract

The European Social Survey has supplemented its questionnaire with the creation of the event database in order to methodologically integrate the survey responses. The aim of this database is to record and evaluate the impact of historical circumstance, as reported by the media, in the shaping of attitudes. While event data anaslysis is a powerful methodological tool in the field of international relations for crisis monitoring, its application in the case of the survey has presented some difficulties, particularly concerning the combination of macro and micro levels of analysis. In order to overcome these difficulties the author proposes a model for analysing the events. This model would better serve the needs of the particular survey in the long term, and may also be of use to similar surveys. The chapter focuses on the specific problems of collecting and recording event data for ESS and especially for Greece.
