Users from non-commercial organisations can download the data directly from the UK Data Service. Access to the data requires Athens registration. You can download the data as SPSS or STATA files, or as a TAB file. Data is archived around a year after the completion of fieldwork (giving time for analysis and reporting). Commercial organisations must notify the National Centre for Social Research by email (BSA@natcen.ac.uk) stating their intended use and seeking permission for download. Permission to download may incur a charge.

Dutch Parliamentary Election Studieshealth, psychology, values
Dutch Parliamentary Election Studies (DPES) are a series of national surveys carried out under the auspices of the Dutch Electoral Research Foundation (SKON). These surveys have been conducted since 1970. Many questions are replicated across studies, although each has questions not asked in the others. The major substantive areas consistently covered include the respondents' attitudes toward and expectations of the government and its effectiveness in both domestic and foreign policy, the most important problems facing the people of the Netherlands, the respondents' voting behavior and participation history, and his/her knowledge of and faith in the nation's political leaders.

European Social Survey
attitudes, beliefs and behaviour patterns; also, political/economic beliefs, environmental perception (2016) and social capital measurements
Academically driven cross-national survey that has been conducted across Europe since its establishment in 2001. Every two years, face-to-face interviews are conducted with newly selected, cross-sectional samples. Over 350,000 face-to-face interviews have been completed since 2002. There are over 100,000 registered users of the data, who can analyse it online using a web-based programme called Nesstar or download it for detailed analysis in programmes such as SPSS, R or STATA. Users are also aided through an online training programme called ESS EduNet. The survey measures the attitudes, beliefs and behaviour patterns of diverse populations in more than thirty nations. The main aims of the ESS are: to chart stability and change in social structure, conditions and attitudes in Europe and to interpret how Europe’s social, political and moral fabric is changing; to achieve and spread higher standards of rigour in cross-national research in the social sciences, including for example, questionnaire design and pre-testing, sampling, data collection, reduction of bias and the reliability of questions; to introduce soundly-based indicators of national progress, based on citizens’ perceptions and judgements of key aspects of their societies; to undertake and facilitate the training of European social researchers in comparative quantitative measurement and analysis; to improve the visibility and outreach of data on social change among academics, policy makers and the wider public. The ESS data is available free of charge for non-commercial use and can be downloaded from https://www.europeansocialsurvey.org/ after a short registration. Overview of topics in the ESS rounds: In the ESS prospectus you will find more information.
