The European Language Vitality Barometer (EuLaViBar) is a tool developed as part of the ELDIA project for assessing the maintenance of a minority language. The EuLaViBar consists of four main devices: (1) a systematic method of data collection with a large-scale questionnaire survey, (2) a system for operationalising the survey results in regards to language maintenance or loss, (3) a calculation formula for analysing the survey data and (4) a polar diagram representing the results of the analyses in a graphic form.
The EuLaViBar Toolkit, containing a revised version of the ELDIA questionnaire, templates and explanations of the statistical method, can be downloaded from the PHAIDRA repository
