The data were collected in twelve surveys from seven countries of central and eastern Europe: the Czech Republic, Poland, Hungary, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia and Russia (Figure 10). There were two principal groups of samples:
  • National samples - a series of seven surveys in national population samples. These surveys were part of a larger set of studies conducted by the Centre for the Study of Public Policy (CSPP) at the University of Strathclyde (Glasgow, Scotland), the so-called New Democracies Barometer (NDB), New Baltic Barometer (NBB) and New Russia Barometer (NRB).

  • Community samples - these include four surveys in populations participating in the WHO MONICA project (6 districts in the Czech Republic, Poland-Warsaw, Poland-Tarnobrzeg, Lithuania-Kaunas) (WHO, 1987), and a survey in the town of Kalocsa in Hungary. The latter was conducted as a baseline study for a community health promotion programme.
