FRA’s second minorities and discrimination survey dataset now available

The dataset from FRA’s Second European Union Minorities and Discrimination Survey (EU MIDIS II) is now available for further use by researchers.

The dataset contains a wealth of information from over 25,000 respondents with different ethnic minority and immigrant backgrounds, including Roma, across all EU Member States.

The dataset provides invaluable information on how the situation developed since the first minorities and discrimination survey in 2008.

It covers additional areas from the first survey such as citizenship, residence, participation, trust and tolerance.

The dataset covers 28 EU Member States, including the United Kingdom, as the survey took place in 2016.

Researchers can carry out their own detailed analysis of the survey results. Academia can also use the data for teaching.

The dataset is stored with the GESIS Data Archive, a certified trusted digital repository.

The GESIS Data Archive contains a description of the dataset and accompanying documents.

Detailed information on how FRA collected the data is outlined in the Technical Report that accompanies the survey. The survey questionnaire is also available online.

The agency’s own analysis of the survey data is available on the FRA website in the form of a list of comprehensive reports.

The country data and the summary of the key findings are available in various EU official languages.

FRA’s own data explorer also provides access to the data, broken down by target group.
