European communities study, 1973 : political attitudes in Europe by Jacques-René Rabier( Book )

14 editions published between 1973 and 2002 in 4 languages and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A precursor to the Eurobarometer studies, this survey queried respondents on some of what would become standard Eurobarometer measures, such as how satisfied they were with their present lives, whether they attempted to persuade others close to them to share their views on subjects they held strong opinions about, whether they discussed political matters, what their country's goals should be for the next ten years, and how they viewed the need for societal change. Additional questions focused on the respondents' knowledge of and opinions on the European Community (EC), including how well-informed they felt about the EC, what sources of information about the EC they used, whether their country had benefited from being an EC member, and the extent of their personal interest in EC matters. Another major focus of the surveys was on the respondents' satisfaction with various aspects of life and society, including satisfaction with their work, housing, leisure time, welfare programs, and life in general. Respondents' political attitudes were also assessed, e.g., political party preference, political participation, and which goals they felt were important for their country. Another series of questions focused on the European Community. Respondents were asked to name the countries that had recently joined the Common Market. They were also asked to rate the information they received from the news media along several dimensions. Other questions covered respondents' attitudes toward their countries' EC membership, e.g., whether it was good or bad and why, whether their own country or the European Community could better handle certain problems, and whether it was desirable to work toward a United Europe. Respondents were also asked which party they supported and to place themselves on a left-right ideological scale. Demographic information on religion, age, occupation, sex, marital status, education, size of community, income, and number of persons in household was also gathered. In addition to the survey itself, the ICPSR version of the study contains three constructed indices. Two of these indices place respondents along a materialist/postmaterialist values continuum and the other categorizes respondents' political ideology according to their party preferences. This study contains information gathered from samples of respondents aged 15 or older interviewed in each of the nine nations of the newly expanded European Community in September-October 1973. The same questionnaire was administered to a total of 13,484 respondents: 1,957 from Germany, 1,933 from Great Britain, 1,199 from Denmark, 1,909 from Italy, 2,227 from France, 1,266 from Belgium, 330 from Luxembourg, 1,199 from Ireland, and 1,464 from the Netherlands

11 editions published between 1984 and 1985 in 3 languages and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This data collection provides information on the goals and attitudes toward current political issues of a sample of 742 candidates for seats in the first elections to the European Parliament, held in June 1979. Interviews were conducted during the two months preceding the election in each of the nine nations that were members of the European Community. The sample includes 62 percent of those who were elected to the European Parliament. Candidates were asked about their reasons for choosing to become candidates, and their views on the goals, priorities, and powers of the European Parliament and the European Community. In addition, the study includes data on each respondent's career history and political affiliation, as well as information on the contacts the candidates had with other parties and the subjective sense of closeness they felt toward them, both in their own nations and across national boundaries within the European Community. The study was designed to permit comparison of opinions between the general public and candidates, and it includes a large number of questions that were also administered to the general public in EURO-BAROMETER 11: YEAR OF THE CHILD IN EUROPE, APRIL 1979 (ICPSR 7752). Demographic information collected on respondents includes age, occupation (other than any political position already held), religion and frequency of religious observation, number of foreign languages spoken, and self-assigned political position on a left-right scale. Background information on the respondents' parents was also obtained, including foreign languages spoken by parents, political affiliation, and occupation ...

Euro-barometer 10 : national priorities and the institutions of Europe, October-November, 1978 by Jacques-René Rabier( Book )

9 editions published between 1980 and 2002 in 3 languages and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This round of Euro-Barometer surveys queried respondents on standard Euro-Barometer measures, such as how satisfied they were with their present life, whether they attempted to persuade others close to them to share their views on subjects they held strong opinions about, whether they discussed political matters, what their country's goals should be for the next ten years, and how they viewed the need for societal change. Additional questions focused on the respondents' knowledge of and opinions on the European Community (EC), including how well-informed they felt about the EC, what sources of information about the EC they used, whether their country had benefited from being an EC member, and the extent of their personal interest in EC matters. Another major focus of the surveys was on European institutions and on problems that respondents felt should be given political priority in the coming years. These issues were probed both in terms of their importance and in terms of whether the national governments or the European Community as a whole might better deal with them. Perceptions of recent changes in the extent of integration and understanding among the Common Market countries also were explored, as were attitudes toward the forthcoming European Parliamentary elections. Standard demographic information collected includes each respondent's religion, education, occupation, marital status, age, and sex, as well as the occupation of the head of household and the composition of the household. In addition to the survey itself, the ICPSR version of the study contains constructed indices on materialist/post-materialist values, left-right partisan vote, European Parliament partisan vote, and cognitive mobilization index (an indicator of an individual's potential to take an active role in the political process). Euro-Barometer 10 contains data gathered from representative samples of respondents aged 15 or older interviewed in each of the nine nations of the EC (Germany, Great Britain, Denmark, Italy, France, Belgium, Luxembourg, Ireland, and the Netherlands) in October-November 1978
