Eurobarometer 43.1BIS: Regional Development and Consumer and Environmental Issues, May-June 1995 (ICPSR 6840)

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 cross-border purchases, environmental protection, regional policies, and agriculture. Respondents were queried about what the Single European Market should mean, what consumer products they purchased from member countries, their satisfaction with products purchased from member countries, obstacles to buying and selling products to other member countries, and areas in which the EU had introduced measures to protect consumers. Environmental questions concerned whether respondents would support various proposals designed to fund the costs of cleaning up pollution, whether they felt information sources about the environment were truthful, and whether they would support "eco-taxes" to slow down the damaging effects of human lifestyle on the environment. Regional questions concentrated on knowledge of the Committee of the Regions, sources of information about the EU, and what the European Commission should do for less developed regions of the EU. Agricultural questions focused on responsibilities of farmers, food prices, and the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP). Demographic and other background information was gathered on the number of people residing in the home, size of locality, household income, and region of residence, as well as the respondent's age, sex, marital status, age when completed education, occupation, previous occupation, and left-right political self-placement.
