Eurobarometer 43.1: International Trade and Radiation Protection, April-May 1995 (ICPSR 6839)

Principal Investigator(s): Reif, Karlheinz; Marlier, Eric


This round of Eurobarometer surveys queried respondents on standard Eurobarometer measures such as public awareness of and attitudes toward the European Union (EU), and also focused on new member states, the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT), and radiation. Questions concerning the addition of Austria, Finland, and Sweden to the EU on January 1, 1995, were asked, focusing on whether the addition of these countries would have a positive, negative, or no effect on individuals, their countries, the EU, gender equality in the EU, unemployment in the EU, policies toward Eastern Europe, and worldwide competitiveness. Respondents were queried about international trade, GATT, and, in particular, economic relationships between counties and how member states' interests should be represented and protected internationally. Radiation questions covered information sources regarding exposure risks and radioactivity levels, satisfaction with information sources, and opinions about radioactivity and exposure risks. Demographic and other background information was gathered on number of people residing in the home, size of locality, region of residence, and occupation of the head of household, as well as the respondent's age, sex, marital status, education, occupation, left-right political self-placement, and ownership of durables.
