Title: CHANGE AND STABILITY IN THE NEW DEMOCRACIES BAROMETER
 
Author: Professor Richard Rose and Dr Christian Haerpfer
 
Description: Since autumn, 1991 the New Democracies Barometer (NDB) has conducted nationwide sample surveys annually across Central and Eastern Europe. In each of ten countries--Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Slovenia, Croatia, Belarus and Ukraine--about one thousand respondents are interviewed face-to-face about economic, political and social attitudes and behaviour. Because the same questions are repeated in each NDB country, cross-national comparisons can be made. Because key questions are repeated from year to year, trends can be analyzed within each country and across a wide variety of post-Communist societies. This paper analyzes trends in the four New Democracies Barometer surveys. It does so first for seven Central and East European countries having associate status with the European Union, and then compares these countries with the former Soviet republics of Russia, Belarus and Ukraine, where mass publics have responded differently to transformation. It also shows that Croats, in spite of wartime conditions, have many similarities with peoples in other countries of Central and Eastern Europe.
