Over time, candidate and accession countries were included in the Standard Eurobarometer Series. Selected questions or modules may not have been surveyed in each sample. Please consult the basic questionnaire for more information on country filter instructions or other questionnaire routing filters. In this study the following modules are included: nuclear energy and safety, public health (electromagnetic fields, alcohol habits, smoking habits and passive smoking, organ donation, personal state of health and prevention). Topics: 1. Nuclear energy and safety: positive or negative associations with nuclear power; contact with nuclear power issues in the past: visited a nuclear power plant, lived in the vicinity of a nuclear power plant, worked on nuclear energy issues; preferred sources of information about current affairs; knowledge test on nuclear energy: nuclear power plants operate in own country, own country has decided to phase out nuclear energy, national government has made a decision concerning the final management of radioactive waste, nuclear power plants are the only users of radioactive materials, one third of Europe´s energy is produced by nuclear power plants; self-rated knowledge about the safety of nuclear power plants; most trusted sources of information on the safety of nuclear power plants; sufficient provision of information about the risks and benefits of different types of energy in school and through the media; assessment of nuclear power plants as a personal threat; attitude towards selected statements: safe operation of nuclear power plants is possible, national legislation ensures nuclear safety, national nuclear safety authority and companies ensure safe operation of nuclear power plants, safe disposal of nuclear waste, security against terrorism and criminal use, safe transport of radioactive materials; attitude towards the following statements on nuclear energy: helps limit global warming, independence from imported fuels such as gas and oil, guarantees low and stable energy prices; ease of replacing nuclear power by renewable energies within the European Union; attitude towards a reduction or an increase of nuclear energy as a proportion of all energy sources; attitude towards selected statements on cooperation between countries with regard to nuclear safety: EU should ensure consistent legislation across all member states, independent decision of each member state about its legislation, EU should facilitate cooperation of European experts in order to develop and implement best practices; preferred way of decision making regarding the development of national energy strategies: participation of citizens, participation of NGOs, leave responsibility to authorities. 2.
