Description
  • Abstract

    The Candidate Countries Eurobarometer (CCEB) series, first conducted in 2001, gathers information from the countries applying to become members of the European Union (EU) in a way that allows direct comparison with the standard Eurobarometer series carried out in the existing EU countries. The CCEB provides decision-makers and the European public with opinion data on the similarities and differences between the EU and the candidate countries. The CCEB continuously tracks support for EU membership in each country, and records changes in attitudes related to European issues in the candidate countries. This round of the CCEB surveys represents the first wave of surveys conducted in October 2001 in the 13 candidate countries: Bulgaria, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, and Turkey. Respondents were queried about life satisfaction and expectations, native tongue and foreign languages spoken, European countries visited and worked in, political discussion with friends, media use, trust in institutions such as the written press and churches, and national and European identity. Respondents were further questioned on knowledge of the EU, its image, role, membership process, and meaning and importance in the respondent's life. Respondents were also asked their opinions on EU enlargement, including whether a country was worthy of membership and what advantages the respondent, various groups, and the EU would have should a particular country be granted membership. Additionally, respondents were queried on what, if any, fears they had concerning the building of the EU. They were also asked what resources they would use to obtain information on the EU, how they would prefer to obtain that information, and on which topics they would like to get more information. Lastly, respondents were asked if they had access to devices such as computers, mobile phones, and fax machines. Demographic and other background information includes age, year of birth, gender, nationality, marital status, age when stopped full-time education and level of education, occupation, whether the respondent received government aid, vote intention, religious affiliation and participation, number of people in the household, if the respondent is the head of the household, household income, ownership of durable goods, type of community, and region of residence.
