Institutional trust

The notion of institutional trust defines to what extent people trust political and social institutions, such as the Dutch parliament, the legal system, the European Parliament and the United Nations. The scale ranges from 0 (no trust whatsoever) to 10 (complete trust). The 6-10 range indicates that people have a lot of confidence in social and political institutions. The question whether people trust political parties was asked for the first time in 2004. Hence, no information is available for the year 2002.
