  • Abstract

    European Constitution. Lisbon Agenda. Education. Environment. Information and communication technologies. Services of general interest. Topics: This round of Eurobarometer surveys diverges from standard trend topics. Respondents were asked if they had heard of the European Constitution, whether they were for or against the European Constitution and why, where they obtained information regarding the European Constitution, and whether they would exercise the ´citizens right of initiation´ described in the draft of the European Constitution. The surveys also solicited respondents´ opinions with respect to the state of both the national and European economy, their assessment of the employment situation, social welfare, and the overall quality of life in their individual countries and how it compared to other EU countries, their outlook for the economy, and their opinion of their overall quality of life. The surveys also inquired about the respondents´ experiences with vocational training such as the extent and nature of information and communication technology training received, sources of funding for such training, recent and future participation in vocational training, and what sorts of training the respondents believed would help them to advance in their careers. Additional questions were asked about what specific environmental issues were of concern to them, and whether or not priority should be given to economic or environmental policies. Respondents were also asked to describe their personal efforts made towards conservation of the environment and what level of government they felt should be responsible for overseeing environmental conservation. There were also several questions pertaining to information and communication technology. Respondents were asked what technological devices were most prevalent in their daily (both professional and personal) lives, to what extent they made use of computers and the Internet, whether or not they had received information and communication technology training, and whether or not they were able to telework. Finally, respondents were asked to describe the services of general interest (telephone, electric, water, postal, public transit) available to them and which were most used, the affordability of these services, and the quality of the services that they received. Demography: Respondent´s age, gender, nationality, marital status, left-right political self-placement, occupation, age at completion of education, household income, type and size of locality, and region.

Sampled Universe
All respondents were residents in the respective country and aged 15 and over.
Sampling Procedure Comment: A multi-stage, random (probability) sampling design was used for this Eurobarometer. In the first stage, primary sampling units (PSU) were selected from each of the administrative regionals units in every country (Statistical Office of the European Community, EUROSTAT NUTS 2 or equivalent). PSU selection was systematic with probability proportional to population size, from sampling frames stratified by the degree of urbanization. In the next stage, a cluster of starting addresses was selected from each sampled PSU, at random. Further addresses were chosen systematically using standard random route procedures as every Nth address from th initial address. In each household, a respondent was drawn, at random, following the closest birthday rule. No more than one interview was conducted in each household.
Collection Mode
  • Face-to-face interviews with standardized questionnaire. As far as the data capture is concerned, CAPI (Computer Assisted Personal Interview) was used in those countries where this technique was available.
