Eurobarometer 77.3: Europe 2020, the Financial and Economic Crisis, European Citizenship and European Values, May 2012 (ICPSR 34676)
Principal Investigator(s): European Commission
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 sociopolitical orientations, as well as respondent and household demographics. The special topic modules address such topics as agriculture, education, natural environment and resources, public health, public safety and crime, and science and technology. This round of Eurobarometer surveys covers the standard modules and the following special topics: (1) Europe 2020, (2) the financial and economic crisis, (3) European citizenship, and (4) European values. Questions pertain to opinions about EU values and priorities for the next decade, attitudes towards globalization, and EU initiatives to recover from the financial crisis. Other questions address respondents' knowledge of EU policies and institutions, views and expectation of European citizenship, and the European Citizens' Initiative. 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, quality of life, difficulties in paying bills, level in society, Internet use, type and size of locality, region of residence, and language of interview (select countries).
