This round of Central and Eastern Euro-Barometer Surveys focused on public support for the European Community (EC) and on attitudes toward political and economic reforms and other issues facing Europe. Respondents were asked whether they felt their country was going in the right direction in general, how well their country's economy and their own finances had fared over the past year, whether they thought the establishment of a free market economy was right or wrong, and whether economic reforms and privatization were occurring too fast or too slowly. Satisfaction with the development of democracy and with their own place in their political system was assessed, as was intention to vote in the next general election. A series of questions elicited opinions on the respect for human rights in one's own country and on the situation for minority rights. Several items concerned respondents' trust in various forms of information media, including broadcasts from the West. Respondents were asked how frequently they thought of themselves as European. They were also asked to indicate how aware they were of, and how interested in, the European Community and its activities and institutions, and to rate how positively they regarded the European Community and the prospect of their country's membership in the Community. Country-specific questions were asked regarding sources of information about the European Community. Participants were also asked about how the economy, government, and private citizens might be advantaged or disadvantaged by the country's increasing ties with the European Community. The survey explored the prospect of future alignments with the United States, the European Community, other East European countries, other (non-EC) European countries, Russia, Turkey, Japan, and South Korea. Opinions were sought on the fairness of European Community and other countries' trade and assistance policies. In additio n, respondents' views were obtained on the break-up of European nations, their personal likelihood of emigration to other European countries, and the effectiveness of the United Nations and other international organizations' intervention in the former Yugoslavia. A few of these questions were asked of a small sample of persons in Serbia and Croatia. Demographic data collected on each participant include age, education, occupation, religion, ethnic background, mother tongue, citizenship, union membership, left/right political placement, sex, and income.
