Version V1

This data collection focuses on a variety of energy problems and transportation-related issues affecting citizens of the nations comprising the European Economic Community. As in previous studies in this series, respondents' attitudes toward the Community, life satisfaction, and social goals continued to be monitored. All respondents were queried on such topics as the seriousness of energy problems in their countries, future energy needs, and the risks associated with various industrial installations. Respondents were also asked about the development and use of nuclear power stations for the production of electricity and whether they had heard of the nuclear power plant accident in the Soviet Union in the spring of 1986. Respondents who held a current driver's license were questioned about the size and type of vehicle driven most often, how frequently they drove, and whether or not they used a safety belt. In addition, the respondent's political orientation, outlook for the future, and socioeconomic and demographic characteristics were recorded.
