Description
  • 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 towards 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 86.2 covered the following special topics: (1) trends in personal, institutional, cultural, and political scenarios, (2) the Europe 2020 strategy and policy priorities, (3) the financial and economic crisis and related EU policies, (4) media usage, and (5) political participation and attitudes. Respondents' opinions were collected regarding life satisfaction, the standard of living, self-esteem, and employment. Additional questions were asked regarding national governmental statistics, EU policies, national and European identity, participation in the EU, EU membership, and democracy. Respondents were also questioned about the economic crisis, economic expectations, and public debt. Respondent's use of media channels and frequencies were assessed, as well as their general modes of political participation and opinions. 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 86.2 interviewed 32,896 citizens in the 28 countries of the European Union (as of July 2013), plus remaining candidate countries (as of March 2015) Macedonia (FYROM), Montenegro, Serbia, Albania and Turkey, as well as the Turkish Community of Cyprus (Northern Cyprus). All respondents were residents in the respective country, with the respective nationalities, or for the EU member countries nationals and non-nationals but EU-citizens, and aged 15 and over. They were supposed to have sufficient command of one of the respective national language(s) to answer the questionnaire. Separate samples were drawn for Great Britain and Northern Ireland as well as for East and West Germany. Smallest Geographic Unit: Country
Sampling
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 the 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. The regular sample size (in the sense of completed interviews) is 1000 respondents per country, except the United Kingdom with separate samples for Great Britain (1000) and Northern Ireland (300), Germany with separate samples for the Eastern (500) and the Western part (1000), as well as Luxembourg, Republic of Cyprus, Malta, Montenegro and Northern Cyprus (Cyprus TCC) with 500 interviews each. Please refer to the Technical Specifications section within the Questionnaire, as well as ZACAT, for additional sampling information.
