  • Abstract

    This round of Euro-Barometer surveys had for its major focus issues involving drugs, alcohol, cancer, and the single European market. Respondents were asked to consider the influence of the environment, the anticipated effects of the Single Market of 1992, and the repercussions of an aging population on public health. Moreover, respondents were asked to identify and prioritize the most serious health problems facing the European Community, and also to evaluate the various efforts being made to combat these problems. Health topics addressed included drugs and drug addiction, cancer, smoking, alcoholism, AIDS, cardiovascular disease, education, diet, and vaccinations. Other major questions involved additional effects of the Single European Market of 1992, and whether certain issues of public policy should be decided by national governments or jointly within the European Community. Also, the survey gauged respondents' perceptions of the European Parliament and the Commission of the European Communities, along with categorizing opinions on the Soviet Union and President Gorbachev, the United States and President Bush, the role and relevance of NATO, U.S. military presence in Western Europe, and the possibility of economic cooperation with Poland and Hungary. Respondents were also asked to give examples of why they felt the United Nations was doing either a good or a poor job in solving the problems it had to face, to name various agencies and institutions that were part of the United Nations, and to identify the Secretary General of the United Nations. Respondents were queried regarding their source of information and education on the United Nations, and were asked to indicate their level of interest in receiving more information on pertinent United Nations issues. As in previous Euro-Barometers, questions on political party preference asked respondents which party they felt the closest to, how they voted in their country's last general election, how they would vote if a general election were held tomorrow, and, if not sure, which party they would be most inclined to vote for. Respondents were also asked to comment on the ideal number of children a family should have, factors influencing the number of children parents decide to have, the role of the family in society, and what government can do to improve life for families. Other items included life satisfaction, use of and attitudes toward dairy products, interest in politics, priority of national goals, political party membership, and union membership. Additional information was gathered on family income, number of people residing in the home, size of locality, region of residence, occupation of the head of household, and the respondent's age, sex, occupation, education, religion, religiosity, subjective social class standing, socio-professional status, and left-right political self-placement.
