We have just deposited the files of the Globalbarometer. This collection will be available from now to our subscribers. The aggregate file itself can be downloaded for free. The collection currently includes data from 4 world regions: Latin America, Asia, Africa and the Arab region.
The data for Latin America come from the Latinobarómetro collection. Data for Asia comes from the Asia barometer. And the data for Africa come from the Afrobarometer. Data from Arab countries come from the Arab-barometer. This makes currently a total of 62 countries.
With this initiative we are setting the basis for world level compared survey analysis. Soon we will be able to include the EURASIA countries from the EURASIA barometer, with all the countries of the old USSR. Also, inclusion of the 24 countries of the European Union is expected as this is being already coordinated with Eurobarometer.
