Description
  • Abstract

    This round of Euro-Barometer surveys queried respondents on standard Euro-Barometer measures, such as how satisfied they were with their present life, whether they attempted to persuade others close to them to share their views on subjects they held strong opinions about, whether they discussed political matters, what their country's goals should be for the next ten years, and how they viewed the need for societal change. Additional questions focused on the respondents' knowledge of and opinions on the European Community (EC), including how well-informed they felt about the EC, what sources of information about the EC they used, whether their country had benefited from being an EC member, and the extent of their personal interest in EC matters. Questions regarding European institutions focused particularly on the role of the European Parliament and the upcoming elections to that body. The survey elicited information on whether respondents would vote in the elections, their knowledge of the state of the European Parliament, and their opinions of the amount of power Parliament should hold. Another major focus of the surveys was aid to developing nations. Attitudes and perceptions concerning the Third World were extensively probed. Respondents were asked about their overall familiarity with national and international organizations that provide aid to Third World and developing countries and whether they would be willing to support those organizations. Demographic data for each respondent includes sex, age, occupation, marital status, occupation, party respondent would support if election were held tomorrow, composition of household, family income, objective and subjective size of community, and province and region of interview. Several constructed indices also are included, e.g., an indicator of an individual's potential to take an active role in the political process. Euro-Barometer 20 contains data gathered from representative samples of respondents who were interviewed in each of the ten nations of the EC (Germany, Great Britain, Denmark, Italy, France, Belgium, Luxembourg, Ireland, the Netherlands, and Greece) in October 1983.
