Data Set
Data set: ESS5CH.sav

All tasks of Assignment 02 use a data set from the European Social Survey (ESS). The ESS is a Europe-
wide survey whose data is freely available to researchers. The survey wave of the year 2010 includes,
among other things, an item battery for trust and an item battery for value orientation (the so-called
Schwartz values scale).

In Task 01 of this assignment, the following 8 items are used to assess trust:
ppltrst Most people can be trusted or you can't be too careful
pplfair Most people try to take advantage of you, or try to be fair
pplhlp Most of the time people helpful or mostly looking out for themselves
trstprl Trust in country's parliament
trstplt Trust in politicians
trstprt Trust in political parties
trstep Trust in the European Parliament
trstun Trust in the United Nations

In Tasks 02 and 03 of this assignment, the following 16 items are used to assess values:
ipcrtiv Important to think new ideas and being creative
imprich Important to be rich, have money and expensive things
ipshabt Important to show abilities and be admired
impsafe Important to live in secure and safe su
oundings
impdiff Important to try new and different things in life
ipfrule Important to do what is told and follow rules
ipmodst Important to be humble and modest, not draw attention
ipgdtim Important to have a good time
impfree Important to make own decisions and be free
ipsuces Important to be successful and that people recognize achievements
ipstrgv Important that government is strong and ensures safety
ipadvnt Important to seek adventures and have an exciting life
ipbhprp Important to behave properly
iprspot Important to get respect from others
imptrad Important to follow traditions and customs
impfun Important to seek fun and things that give pleasure

In Assignment 02, these two item batteries are empirically examined using data from n = 1,506 Swiss
esidents.
