In order to produce samples more representative of the populations in each country, the national weight variables ("Weight Result from Target" (W1) )should be used when analyzing the background files at national level. At European level there is a row of "European weights" available to correctly weight combinations of countries into common totals.

A number of earlier Eurobarometer surveys have focussed on gender equality. This 2014 survey is very similar to a survey conducted in 2009 . However, the wording of some questions have been modified compared to the 2009 survey and therefore those modifications need to be taken into account when analysing the trends.
A 2010 survey explored EU citizens’ perceptions of gender violence.
A 2012 survey focused on women in decision-making positions across Europe.
Another 2012 survey provided insight into the evolution of perceptions, attitudes,knowledge and awareness of discrimination (covering gender, ethnic origin, religion and beliefs, age, disability, sexual orientation and gender identity)
and a 2012 survey focused on gender inequalities in the EU.
