Description
  • Abstract

    This Eurobarometer survey queried respondents on standard Eurobarometer measures as well as lifelong learning, health, and partners and fertility. To start the interview, standard trend questions were asked regarding the euro and European Union (EU) policies. New questions were asked about EU expansion and priorities for local and national authorities. Topics: Questions were asked regarding lifelong learning situations within and outside of one´s private life. Respondents were queried about places where learning occurred (e.g., school, work, social situations, and home), whether the study/training was for work or personal reasons, whether it was mandatory, what the benefits were, reasons for future study/training, best ways to improve job skills, obstacles to study/training, most useful information sources for study/training, and how much respondents would be willing to pay toward study/training. Respondents were also asked whether they possessed certain skills and could prove it, whether these skills were important within and outside of their private lives, and which study/training opportunities in the past five years they considered most important. The third portion of the interview collected information on respondent health problems and health-related issues. Questions were asked pertaining to current illnesses, visitation of various medical professionals, long-term treatment of a variety of conditions (e.g., diabetes, cancer, and AIDS/HIV), dental issues, health tests, and check-ups (e.g., X-rays, blood pressure, and hearing), diet, alcohol consumption, and opinions of and things done to ensure child safety. Women in the study were asked about their knowledge and use of hormone replacement therapy, gynecological and other female-specific types of exams, and breastfeeding of children. The fourth portion of the survey dealt with issues of family and partners. Respondents were asked about the importance of having a spouse/partner and children, whether the father or mother should carry out certain childcare and household tasks, if they had children and if so who was responsible for various household and childcare tasks, and with which of these task divisions they were most dissatisfied. They were also queried on plans for more children and desire for and timing of the births of current children. Demography: Age, gender, nationality, marital status, left-right political self-placement, occupation, age at completion of education, type and size of locality, and household income.

Sampling
A multi-stage sampling design was used for this Eurobarometer. In the first stage, primary sampling units (PSU) were selected from each of the administrative regions in every country (i.e., Statistical Office of the European Community, EUROSTAT regions). 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 addresses was selected from each sampled PSU. Addresses were chosen systematically using standard random route procedures, beginning with an initial address selected at random. In each household, a respondent was selected, by a random procedure. Up to three recalls were made to obtain an interview with the selected respondent. No more than one interview was conducted in each household. All respondents were aged 15 and over. Separate samples were drawn for Northern Ireland and East Germany.
