10 editions published in 1993 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This round of Euro-Barometer surveys focused on the European Community and on the European Parliamentary elections, energy resources, environmental pollution, and the financial well-being of the respondents' households. Respondents' attitudes towards the European Community were elicited through a series of questions that asked about respondents' interest in politics and in European Community politics, views on the importance of European Community matters for the future and, more specifically, for people of the respondent's country, support of efforts to unify western Europe, and opinions on whether the respondent's country had benefited from being a member the European Community. Questions about the European Parliamentary elections included queries on the role of the media, whether the respondent had voted in the recent European elections and which party the respondent voted for, and reasons for not voting. Respondents were asked if candidates' stands on domestic matters or on European matters were important in their voting decision, and which reason best explained the way they voted. Other questions examined the respondent's views on whether cooperation among national members of the European Parliament should be based on nationality or on party affiliations. Political queries included questions about the idea of democracy, how well democracy worked in the respondent's country, and to what extent the respondent believed the European Community was democratic. In a series of questions on environmental issues, respondents were asked to evaluate major energy resources in terms of price stability, supply, and pollution, and to weigh the risks, costs, and benefits of nuclear energy. They were also asked about the causes, effects, and possible solutions for the problems of acid rain, the greenhouse effect, and the deteriorating ozone layer. Additio ...

This round of Euro-Barometer surveys investigated life satisfaction, union membership, smoking habits, knowledge and views regarding cancer, views on the importance of NATO and certain national problems, attitudes toward democracy and individual liberties, attitudes toward immigrants and out-groups (i.e., people of another nationality, race, religion, culture, or social class), and knowledge of and attitudes toward European Community institutions and policies, including the Common Agricultural Policy and the creation of a single European market in 1992. Respondents also were asked to name current topics and events most important for them and to state whether or not certain causes such as the protection of wildlife and the promotion of world peace were worth taking risks and making sacrifices for. Questions on political party preferences asked respondents which party they felt the closest to, how they voted in their country's last general election, how they would vote if a general election were held tomorrow, and how they planned to vote in the June 1989 elections for the European Parliament. The survey also gauged respondents' perceptions of the general attitude of each country's political parties toward the European Community. The inquiry into out-groups asked respondents to identify groups that came to mind when they thought of people of another nationality, race, religion, culture, or social class. Respondents were asked if they counted any out-group members among their friends and if any of these persons worked at their place of employment or lived in their neighborhood. Additional questions asked respondents if they were disturbed by the presence of these out-groups and if they thought that these groups exploited social welfare benefits, increased unemployment, contributed to delinquency and violence, affected property prices, or reduce ...
