  • Abstract

    This round of Eurobarometer surveys queried respondents on the standard Eurobarometer measures as well as agricultural policy, development aid, social capital, and information and communication technology. Topics: To start the interview, standard trend questions were asked regarding support for membership of the European Union, trust in three specific institutions (the Parliament, the Commission, and the Council), support for the European Constitution, and the international political situation. Next, questions were asked regarding agriculture policy. Respondents gave their views on the role of the agriculture policy of the European Union (EU), whether the policy was playing its role well or badly, and whether the EU should subsidize agricultural products or grant more funds to the overall rural economy and to direct support for farmers. The third portion of the interview collected information on respondents´ views on development aid. Questions were asked pertaining to the importance of helping people in impoverished countries, providing aid to those countries, how much of the nation´s and the European Commission´s budget should be spent on aid to other countries, whether the respondent had heard about the Millennium Development Goals, and which three actions would be the most important for their government to undertake in order to help developing countries achieve the Millennium Development Goals. Another major focus of the survey was social capital. A series of questions addressed satisfaction with life, the importance of different aspects of life, personal networks, political and social commitment, and discrimination experience. The last topic of the survey was information and communication technology at the workplace. Respondents were asked what technological devices were most prevalent in their daily lives (both professional and personal), to what extent they made use of computers and the Internet, whether they had received information and communication technology training, and whether they were able to telecommute (telework). Demography: Respondent´s age, gender, nationality, origin of birth (personal and parental), marital status, left-to-right political self-placement, occupation, age when they stopped full-time education, household composition, 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. They were supposed to have sufficient command of one of the respective national language(s) to answer the questionnaire. Separate samples were drawn for Northern Ireland and East Germany.
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.
