  • Abstract

    The Eurobarometer series is a unique cross-national and cross-temporal survey program conducted on behalf of the European Commission. These surveys regularly monitor public opinion in the European Union (EU) member countries and consist of standard modules and special topic modules. The standard modules address attitudes toward European unification, institutions and policies, measurements for general socio-political orientations, as well as respondent and household demographics. The special topic modules address such topics as agriculture, education, natural environment and resources, public health, public safety and crime, and science and technology. Eurobarometer 85.1 covered the following special topics: (1) Attitudes Toward the EU and the Fight Against Terrorism in the EU, (2) Antimicrobial Resistance, (3) Financial Products and Services, and (4) Online Platforms. Respondents' opinions were collected regarding attitudes toward European policies and actions, the terrorist threat and measures against terrorism, radicalisation and recruitment of EU citizens by terrorist organizations, and the mutual defense clause of the EU. Respondents were also questioned about their use of antibiotics and understanding of antimicrobial resistance, familiarity with antibiotic use in farm animals, and thoughts on the effectiveness of tackling antibiotic resistance at the individual, regional, national, EU, and global level. Additional questions were asked regarding respondent use of financial products and services, including those purchased in other EU member states, provider changes, and cross-border transactions using other currencies. Respondents' opionions were also queried regarding online platforms, search engines and search results, terms and conditions of online platforms, use of personal data, and the reliability of review rankings or rating systems. Demographic and other background information collected includes age, gender, nationality, marital status, occupation, age when stopped full-time education, household composition, ownership of a fixed or mobile telephone and other goods, difficulties in paying bills, level in society, and Internet use. In addition, country-specific data includes type and size of locality, region of residence, and language of interview (select countries).

Sampled Universe
In all, Eurobarometer 85.1 interviewed 27,969 citizens in the 28 countries of the European Union after the 2013 enlargement with the accession of Croatia. All respondents have the respective nationalities of the 28 European Union Member States, residence in each of the Member States, and are aged 15 and over. Smallest Geographic Unit: Country
The basic sample design applied in all states is a multi-stage, random (probability) one. In each country, a number of sampling points were drawn with the probability proportional to population size (for a total coverage of the country) and to population density. In order to do so, the sampling points were drawn systematically from each of the "administrative regional units," after stratification by individual unit and type of area. They thus represent the whole territory of the countries surveyed according to the EUROSTAT NUTS II (or equivalent) and according to the distribution of the resident population of the respective nationalities in terms of metropolitan, urban and rural areas. In each of the selected sampling points, a starting address was drawn, at random (following the "closest birthday rule"). No more than one interview was conducted in each household. Please refer to the Technical Specifications section within the Questionnaire, as well as ZACAT, for additional sampling information.
