Posted: November 12, 2019

The European University Cyprus in collaboration with the University of Cyprus organised on Monday, 11 November at 9:30 am at the European University Cyprus Senate Room a Press Conference on the occasion of the publication of the results of the 9th round of the European Social Survey (ESS).

The European Social Survey (ESS) is a scientific comparative study conducted every two years since 2002 across Europe and measures the attitudes, beliefs and patterns of citizen behaviour across a range of political, social, economic and cultural issues in more than thirty countries.

The conference was attended by the Deans of the two universities, professors Kostas Giouliamos and Tasos Christofides. Professor Marios Vryonidis of European University Cyprus, who served as National Research Coordinator for the period from November 2017 to August 2019, along with Assistant Professor of the University of Cyprus Haris Psaltis, who assumes the post for the next two years, will present key research findings.

The field research was co-ordinated by the University of Cyprus Field Research Center and was conducted from October 2018 to April 2019 with personal interviews using a questionnaire based on a common standard but containing customized questions for each country. The survey sample is representative of all persons aged 15 years and over (without maximum age) residing in private households in Cyprus, regardless of nationality, nationality or language. Individuals are selected by strict random sampling methods. The sample size is approximately 800 people and covers all urban and rural areas of Cyprus.

Cyprus’ participation in this leading European research groundwork is funded by the Cypriot Directorate General for European Programmes, Coordination and Development (DG EPCD).
