Respondents were asked how many childrenunder the age of 14 were living in their household and if thechildren´s grandparents ever looked after them and with what frequency.In addition, respondents with grandchildren were asked if they everlooked after their grandchildren and whether or not they did so on aregular basis. Respondents also were asked a series of questionsregarding product safety information with respect to ´Do-it-yourself´(DIY) products. Respondents were shown different logos that hadappeared on DIY products and were asked if they were familiar with thevarious logos and if they knew what the logos said about the product.Respondents were asked if they took safety logos or other safetyinformation into account when purchasing DIY products, whether or notthey read instructions accompanying DIY products, whether they keptinstructions for future use, where they thought the best location forinstructions would be, whether they preferred safety instructions to beconveyed by logos or text, and whether or not safety information forDIY products was generally useful. Similarly, they were asked aboutproduct safety information regarding toys and other products forchildren.

Respondents´ opinionswere sought regarding the most effective placement of safetyinstructions, whether they preferred the risks of using a toy orchildren´s product to be indicated by logos or symbols or by text, andthe usefulness of warnings appearing in text form. Finally, respondentswere asked to make judgments on the overall usefulness of safetyinformation for toys and children´s products.

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.

The regular sample size (in the sense of completed interviews) is 1000respondents per country, except the United Kingdom with separatesamples for Great Britain (1000) and Northern Ireland (300), Luxembourg(600) and Germany with separate samples for the Eastern and the Westernpart (1000 each).
