Abstract
This round of Eurobarometer surveys diverged from the standard Eurobarometer measures and queried respondents on (1) the European Union (EU) and its neighbors, (2) services of general interest, (3) employment and social policy, (4) energy technologies, and (5) family planning. For the first topic, the European Union and its neighbors, respondents were asked to identify the number of current EU member countries and those countries that were to join the EU in the near future. In addition, the survey gathered respondents' opinions on their interactions with individuals from other countries, and the relationship between the EU and certain neighboring countries, i.e., the European Neighborhood Policy. Secondly, respondents were asked to identify services of general interest (telephone, the Internet, electric, water, postal, public transit, and banking system) that were most important and used, and about access to particular services, the affordability of services received, provider comparison and contracts, and consumer complaints. In regard to the third topic, employment and social policy, respondents were asked whether they had heard of specific government funds or programs such as the European Social Fund. In addition, respondents answered questions about past, current, and future employment, job training, unemployment insurance, and measures to hire and retain employees. For the topic of energy technologies, respondents were asked to identify issues of concern pertaining to energy and their nation, and about sources of energy, methods of energy production, energy consumption, EU dependence on energy, and energy policy and research. Finally, the survey collected information on respondents' views in regard to family planning. Questions were asked about family size, the timing of giving birth to and raising children, decision-making in having another child, and the future of respondents' household situations. Respondents gave their views on the roles of men and women in raising children, the ideal ages for men and women to have children, and solutions for potential shortages in the workforce. Demographic and other background information includes age, gender, origin of birth (personal and parental), marital status, left-right political self-placement, occupation, age at completion of full-time education, household composition, religious affiliation and involvement, and ownership of a fixed or a mobile telephone and other durable goods. In addition, country-specific data include type and size of locality, region of residence, and language of interview (select countries).Cf: http://doi.org/10.3886/ICPSR20761.v2
