This round of Eurobarometer surveys diverged from the standard Eurobarometer measures and queried respondents on the following major areas of focus: (1) nuclear energy, (2) corruption, (3) gender equality, (4) health care quality, and (5) civil protection. For the first major topic, nuclear energy, the survey asked respondents questions about how well informed they were about nuclear energy, opinions on nuclear safety, lifetime extensions of nuclear plants, and who should make decisions about nuclear energy. For the next major focus, respondents were questioned about their trust in government, the pervasiveness of and reasons for corruption, and specific government groups that participate in corruption. The third area of focus surveyed respondents about gender inequality issues. Respondents were asked about working women, salary inequality, family issues, sexism, and violence against and poverty of women. In addition, respondents were surveyed about the course of action necessary to fix gender inequality in the European Union (EU). The next topic asked respondents about health care and its quality, adverse events, and responsibility and compensation for patient safety. Lastly, for the topic on civil protection, the survey asked respondents their opinion on the emergency preparedness and disaster prevention plans of their own countries and of the EU. Respondents were asked about the extent and input of volunteer organizations and the EU's cooperation with other member countries in the prevention of and recovery from disasters.
