The eighth round of Central and Eastern Eurobarometer surveys was carried out in Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, and Slovenia. Respondents were asked many questions that appeared in earlier surveys in this series. These included items on whether respondents felt that things in their country were going in the right or wrong direction, how satisfied they were with the way democracy was developing and how it was working in their country, and how much respect there now was for human rights. Respondents were also asked to identify the flags of different countries and organizations, to provide their impressions of the aims and activities of the European Union (EU), and to comment on which countries they believed their future was most closely tied to, how they would vote if referenda on the question of their country's membership in the EU and in NATO were held tomorrow, and the main reasons for their votes. Additional questions focused on which groups within their societies would likely benefit or lose out as ties between their country and the EU increased, whether their country or the EU itself benefitted the most from the current relationship between the two, the ways they might hear about the activities of the EU, and if they wanted to learn more about what the EU was doing on a variety of economic and social issues. New questions explored whether respondents had ever heard of the United Nations, the European Union, or the Council of Europe, and whether they would be more or less likely to vote for EU membership if their country had first joined NATO. Demographic information collected on respondents covers sex, age, highest level of education completed, occupation, voting status, mother tongue and knowledge of other languages, which party they would vote for should there be a general election held tomorrow, nationality/ethnic background, region of residence, size of locality, and income.
