EVS2017 in Czech Republic: results presented



The EVS Czech team presented yesterday in a conference press the results of EVS 2017 run in Czech Republic.

"Czechs are the happiest in the history of history", the Czech media reported yesterday. The data presented at the press conference, which was organized by the research team of the Institute of Population Studies led by Ladislav Rabušice, was presented at the Faculty of Social Studies at Masaryk University yesterday. The full article (in Czech) is available here.

The data itself comes from the longitudinal comparative project European Values Study, whose next wave of investigation took place last year. Data processing from this and three previous survey waves for the Czech Republic is part of the Grant Agency of the Czech Republic entitled "Value Changes in the Czech Republic from a European and World Perspective", which is being solved by the team around Professor Rabušice.

The first important output of the project is the source publication "Values and Attitudes in the Czech Republic 1991-2017" published by the University Publishing House Munipress, which you can find in the article link, where you can freely download its electronic form.
