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, pubic safety and crime, and science and technology. Eurobarometer 88.3 covered standard trend questions on living conditions, important political issues, trust in institutions, democracy satisfaction, perception of and attitudes towards the European Union and European Unification, and also on their knowledge about the European Union. Respondents' opinions were collected regarding their level of political participation and general political attitudes. Respondents were also questioned about European Citizenship, citizen rights and identification. Additional questions were asked regarding the impact of the economic crisis on the job market, and about policy measures related to the financial and economic crisis. Respondents were also asked about policy priorities, such as the Europe 2020 strategy. Finally, respondents were asked about media use and political information on national and European matters. 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 88.3 interviewed 33,193 citizens in the 28 countries of the European Union (as of July 2013), plus remaining candidate countries (as of March 2015) Makedonia (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
The basic sample design applied in all states was 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 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. Please refer to the Technical Specifications section within the Questionnaire, as well as ZACAT, for additional sampling information.
