Standardised online survey 
Field Period:
May 4, 2021 - Sep 19, 2021
Gross Sample Size:
n = 1,397,326
Net Sample Size:
n = 187,935
Response Rate:

The 187,935 cases are an adjusted response number. They are available as analysable cases in the data package. Participation in the study was higher overall, but some of the respondents were directed to the European education monitoring survey EUROSTUDENT, which is not part of the data package. In addition - based on the standards of the American Association for Public Opinion Research (AAPOR) - cases were excluded where weaknesses in data quality (lack of central information, straightlining, speeding) were suspected. Further details can be found in the data and methods report.
