Euro-barometer 21: Political Cleavages in the European Community, April 1984 (ICPSR 8263)

Principal Investigator(s): Rabier, Jacques-Rene; Riffault, Helene; Inglehart, Ronald


This study explores public attitudes in the ten member nations of the European Economic Community. The monitoring of attitudes on European integration, life satisfaction, and social goals undertaken in previous Euro-Barometers was continued in this data collection. Respondents were asked questions regarding the European Community, specifically which nations they would prefer not be members of the Community. Respondents were also questioned concerning their consumer attitudes and buying habits, particularly concerning foreign products. German and British respondent attitudes toward present levels of government spending in a number of areas were also investigated. Additional questions, asked in Germany, France, Italy, the Netherlands and Great Britain, measure respondent support for various political movements, such as ecology and anti-nuclear groups.
