  • Abstract

    This survey was designed to measure public opinion of the Spanish population on a variety of topics relating to questions of national and supranational identity. Respondents were asked about their current situation, their concerns, degree of personal satisfaction, degree of happiness, and basic attitudes. Respondents were asked for their opinions about Spain and the world, and what they thought were the most important national and international issues. Respondents were asked about their identification with other countries and regions in around the world, as well as their knowledge of and interest in world affairs. A series of questions was also asked about their attitudes and identification with Latin America. Questions addressed the following specific topics: their knowledge of Latin American countries, their evaluation of Spanish influence in Latin America, present relations between Spain and Latin America, desired relations between Spain and Latin America, and their basic attitudes towards Spanish-Latin American relations. There was a similar series of questions relating to attitudes and identification with Europe. Respondents were asked about their knowledge of and attitudes toward the European Economic Community (EEC), the perceived benefits for Spain due to membership in the EEC, their degree of identification with Europe, their participation in European elections, the consequences of European unification, and their experience traveling in Europe. Respondents also were asked about their identification with their autonomous community and whether they identified more with it or with Spain. Demographic information includes gender, age, marital status, size of household, occupation, religion, political ideology, social class (subjective), place of birth, place of residence, education, and income.
