The article provides an overview of the surveys conducted among MPs of the Czech parliament between 1993 and 2005. It describes seven surveys conducted among MPs in the Chamber of Deputies and one survey among members of the Senate. Particularly in the early 1990s such surveys were conducted or at least run and financed by researchers from outside the Czech Republic. These surveys are characterised from the perspective of the content of the observed variables and from the perspective of representativeness, which is demonstrated by the percentage of MPs taking part in the survey. The article also contains references to texts that have made use of the data provided by these MP surveys.
