'The Question Bank' has joined the UK Data Service which led to it's new version 'Variable and Question Bank'. It is intended to assist with the design of new survey questionnaires, the search for data for secondary analysis, and the teaching of survey research methods. Its emphasis is on UK surveys, but it also covers the "European Community Household Panel", and the "European Social Survey".
