Scope of Study
Summary: This round of Eurobarometer surveys diverged from the Standard Eurobarometer measures and queried participants on the following major areas of focus: (1) humanitarian aid, (2) domestic violence against women, and (3) mental well-being. For the first major area of focus, humanitarian aid, the survey focused on the interviewee’s level of awareness of organizations that provide aid and finance these efforts. Participants were asked how much they knew about humanitarian aid activities, the importance of funding these activities outside the European Union (EU) and informing EU citizens about the funding of activities, and whether the EU as an entity or each separate member state would be more efficient in providing humanitarian aid. For the second major area of focus, domestic violence against women, respondents were queried on their awareness of and proximity to domestic violence, as well as their perception of domestic violence, including some potential reasons for its prevalence. Additionally, respondents identified whether certain institutions, organizations, or people should come to the aid of women experiencing domestic violence. They also evaluated the usefulness of certain resources to combat domestic violence, and were asked whether or not they believed legislative action should be taken on domestic violence. For the third and final major area of focus, mental well-being, the survey assessed respondents' levels of mental well-being over the last four weeks. Topics encompassed positive and negative feelings, absence from work, and the effects of physical health and emotional problems. In addition, respondents were asked about their level of comfort at work, care and treatment for their mental well-being, including sources of professional help and use of antidepressants, and the perception they have of others with mental health problems. Demographic and other background information 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, Internet use, type and size of locality, region of residence, and language of interview (in select countries).
