Eurobarometer 63.5: Consumer Rights in Poland, June-July 2005 (ICPSR 30881)

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 socio-political 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 special topic of consumer rights in Poland and includes the following major areas of focus: (1) awareness of one's consumer rights and (2) awareness of consumer rights organizations. Questions pertain to media attention on consumer rights, awareness of the message "Sprawde, jakie masz prawa" ("Check what your rights are"), consumer rights compared to other EU countries, knowledge of rights as a consumer, and the Polish justice system. Questions regarding trust, knowledge, and opinions of certain institutions, organizations, and campaigns that deal with consumer rights are also included.

Demographic and other background information collected includes age, gender, nationality, origin of birth (personal and parental), marital status, left-right political self-placement, occupation, age when stopped full-time education, household composition, and ownership of a fixed or mobile telephone. In addition, country-specific data includes type and size of locality, and region of residence.

All questions are replicated in the framework of Eurobarometer 64.3 (ICPSR 4590) and were in large part already asked in the framework of Eurobarometer 63.3 (ICPSR 23680), always for Poland only.
