description:
This round of Eurobarometer surveys queried respondents on standard Eurobarometer measures such as how satisfied they were with their present life. Additional questions focused on the respondents’ current living conditions as compared to five years ago, and expectations for the future, including jobs, unemployment, their financial situation, inequality, affordable energy and housing, and the economic situation in their country. Further questions centered on four major areas: (1) European employment and social policy, (2) discrimination, (3) development aid, and (4) air transport services. For the first major area, European employment and social policy, the survey focused on respondents’ familiarity with the European Social Fund (ESF), past and present employers, the most valuable assets in finding a job, job training, the likelihood of finding a job if laid off, and whether the European Union (EU) has a positive or negative impact on employment and social policies. For the second major area, discrimination, respondents were asked about discrimination based on ethnic origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, religion, and disability. The survey queried respondents about the extent of discrimination in their countries, whether discrimination is more or less common compared with five years ago, their personal experiences of discrimination in the past 12 months, their level of comfort with politicians of min ority backgrounds, diversity in the media and workplace, how the economic crisis may affect discrimination, and respondents’ identification with minority groups. For the third major area, development aid, respondents were queried about the importance of helping people in developing countries, the Millennium Development Goals, motives for rich countries to provide aid to developing nations, the countries best positioned to help develop countries, the largest challenges facing developing nations, and the European Union’s contribution to development. The final major focus of the survey concluded with questions about respondents’ use of air transportation, knowledge of air passengers rights, and satisfaction and positive and negative experiences with air transport services. Demographic and other background information includes age, gender, nationality, origin of birth (personal and parental), marital status and parental relations, left-right political placement, occupation, age when stopped full-time education, household composition, religious affiliation, ownership of a fixed or a mobile telephone and other durable goods, difficulty paying bills, level in society, Internet use, minority group affiliation, type and size of locality, region of residence, and language of interview (in select countries).
