description:
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 noise and other social problems. Respondents were asked about the existence of and degree of disturbance caused by various traffic and street noises, mechanical noises, and noisy neighbors. A battery of questions about social and political issues also was asked, e.g., inequality of income, nuclear energy, terrorism, expansion of private industry, military defense, the economy, the environment, and regional autonomy. Demographic information about the respondents includes age, sex, religion, marital status, age upon completion of full-time education, occupation of head of household, composition of household, subjective size of town, and family income. Several constructed indices also are included. Euro-Barometer 16 contains data gathered from representative samples of respondents who were interviewed in each of the ten nations of the EC (Germany, Great Britain, Denmark, Italy, France, Belgium, Luxembourg, Ireland, the Netherlands, and Greece) in October 1981.
