European communities study, 1973 : political attitudes in Europe by Jacques-René Rabier( Book )

13 editions published between 1973 and 2002 in 4 languages and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A precursor to the Eurobarometer studies, this survey queried respondents on some of what would become standard Eurobarometer measures, such as how satisfied they were with their present lives, whether they attempted to persuade others close to them to share their views on subjects they held strong opinions about, whether they discussed political matters, what their country's goals should be for the next ten years, and how they viewed the need for societal change. Additional questions focused on the respondents' knowledge of and opinions on the European Community (EC), including how well-informed they felt about the EC, what sources of information about the EC they used, whether their country had benefited from being an EC member, and the extent of their personal interest in EC matters. Another major focus of the surveys was on the respondents' satisfaction with various aspects of life and society, including satisfaction with their work, housing, leisure time, welfare programs, and life in general. Respondents' political attitudes were also assessed, e.g., political party preference, political participation, and which goals they felt were important for their country. Another series of questions focused on the European Community. Respondents were asked to name the countries that had recently joined the Common Market. They were also asked to rate the information they received from the news media along several dimensions. Other questions covered respondents' attitudes toward their countries' EC membership, e.g., whether it was good or bad and why, whether their own country or the European Community could better handle certain problems, and whether it was desirable to work toward a United Europe. Respondents were also asked which party they supported and to place themselves on a left-right ideological scale. Demographic information on religion, age, occupation, sex, marit...

10 editions published between 1983 and 2002 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This round of Euro-Barometer surveys queried respondents on standard Euro-Barometer measures, such as how satisfied they were with their present life, whether they attempted to persuade others close to them to share their views on subjects they held strong opinions about, whether they discussed political matters, what their country's goals should be for the next ten years, and how they viewed the need for societal change. Additional questions focused on the respondents' knowledge of and opinions on the European Community (EC), including how well-informed they felt about the EC, what sources of information about the EC they used, whether their country had benefited from being an EC member, and the extent of their personal interest in EC matters. Another major focus of the surveys was noise and other social problems. Respondents were asked about the existence of and degree of disturbance caused by various traffic and street noises, mechanical noises, and noisy neighbors. A battery of questions about social and political issues also was asked, e.g., inequality of income, nuclear energy, terrorism, expansion of private industry, military defense, the economy, the environment, and regional autonomy. Demographic information about the respondents includes age, sex, religion, marital status, age upon completion of full-time education, occupation of head of household, composition of household, subjective size of town, and family income. Several constructed indices also are included. Euro-Barometer 16 contains data gathered from representative samples of respondents who were interviewed in each of the ten nations of the EC (Germany, Great Britain, Denmark, Italy, France, Belgium, Luxembourg, Ireland, the Netherlands, and Greece) in October 1981
European men and women by Jacques-René Rabier( Book )

10 editions published between 1975 and 2002 in 4 languages and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This round of Euro-Barometer surveys queried respondents on standard Euro-Barometer measures, such as how satisfied they were with their present life, whether they attempted to persuade others close to them to share their views on subjects they held strong opinions about, whether they discussed political matters, what their country's goals should be for the next ten years, and how they viewed the need for societal change. Additional questions focused on the respondents' knowledge of and opinions on the European Community (EC), including how well-informed they felt about the EC, what sources of information about the EC they used, whether their country had benefited from being an EC member, and the extent of their personal interest in EC matters. Another major focus of the surveys was on European men and women. To mark International Women's Year and to arrive at a better understanding of men's and women's attitudes, this study focused on the status of women in the EC. Respondents were asked about the importance of this topic and their perceptions and evaluations of changes in the status of women. The study also attempted to ascertain whether both men and women desired to see fewer differences between the sexes. The survey also probed attitudes toward the political role of women. The survey includes standard demographic information for each respondent, including education, occupation, marital status, age, and sex, as well as occupation of head of household, and composition of household. In addition to the survey itself, the ICPSR version of the study contains three constructed indices. Two of these indices categorize respondents' political ideology according to their partisan support and their left-right leanings, and the third index measures the respondents' opinion leadership in discussions with others about politics.

Consumer attitudes in Europe by Jacques-René Rabier( Book )

13 editions published between 1975 and 2002 in 4 languages and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This round of Euro-Barometer surveys queried respondents on standard Euro-Barometer measures, such as how satisfied they were with their present life, whether they attempted to persuade others close to them to share their views on subjects they held strong opinions about, whether they discussed political matters, what their country's goals should be for the next ten years, and how they viewed the need for societal change. Additional questions focused on the respondents' knowledge of and opinions on the European Community (EC), including how well-informed they felt about the EC, what sources of information about the EC they used, whether their country had benefited from being an EC member, and the extent of their personal interest in EC matters. Another major focus of the surveys was on the attitudes and behavior of European consumers. An initial series of questions dealt with the buying habits of respondents in a number of areas. The questionnaire then inquired about complaints respondents may have had with various products and services, and actions they may have taken on those complaints. The interview also probed for awareness of various efforts to protect and inform consumers. Other questions assessed attitudes towards consumer protection attempts and reactions to consumer testing institutes. The survey gathered standard demographic information for each respondent including education, occupation, marital status, age, and sex, as well as the occupation of the head of household and composition of the household. In addition to the survey itself, the ICPSR version of the study contains three constructed indices. Two of these indices categorize respondents' political ideology according to their partisan support and their left-right leanings, and the third index measures the respondents' opinion leadership in discussions with others about politics.

Candidates were asked about their reasons for choosing to become candidates, and their views on the goals, priorities, and powers of the European Parliament and the European Community. In addition, the study includes data on each respondent's career history and political affiliation, as well as information on the contacts the candidates had with other parties and the subjective sense of closeness they felt toward them, both in their own nations and across national boundaries within the European Community.

The monitoring of attitudes on European integration, life satisfaction, and social goals undertaken in previous Euro-Barometers was continued in this data collection.

Another major focus of the surveys was on European institutions and on problems that respondents felt should be given political priority in the coming years. These issues were probed both in terms of their importance and in terms of whether the national governments or the European Community as a whole might better deal with them. Perceptions of recent changes in the extent of integration and understanding among the Common Market countries also were explored, as were attitudes toward the forthcoming European Parliamentary elections. Standard demographic information collected includes each respondent's religion, education, occupation, marital status, age, and sex, as well as the occupation of the head of household and the composition of the household. In addition to the survey itself, the ICPSR version of the study contains constructed indices on materialist/post-materialist values, left-right partisan vote, European Parliament partisan vote, and cognitive mobilization index (an indicator of an individual's potential to take an active role in the political process).
