Summary
This collection presents responses to a set of questions asked in both EURO-BAROMETER 35.0: FOREIGN RELATIONS, THE COMMON AGRICULTURAL POLICY, AND ENVIRONMENTAL CONCERNS, SPRING 1991 (ICPSR 9697) and EURO-BAROMETER 35.1: PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION AND BIOTECHNOLOGY, SPRING 1991 (ICPSR 9698). The survey queried respondents on standard Eurobarometer measures, such as 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 whether their country had benefited from being a member of the European Community (EC). The major focus of this collection was working conditions. Respondents were asked about the main business activity of the establishment where they worked, the number of hours they worked daily and weekly, and whether they worked on shifts. They were also asked whether their work involved dangerous machines, high speed activity, tiring positions, heavy loads, tight deadlines, using computers, or working at night, and whether they felt they had sufficient resources, such as training, information, tools, and support, to carry out their tasks. The survey also collected information on safety, hygiene, and health standards at workplaces and their influence on work efficiency. Respondents were asked whether their professional activities affected their health or threatened them with accident and injury, whether they had ever had work-related illnesses or accidents, and who should be responsible for reduction of accidents and work-related illnesses. Several items assessed awareness of European Community efforts concerning safety, hygiene, and health standards at work and support for the application of common legislation in the EC member countries concerning health and safety issues at work. Respondents were also asked which countries in the EC had the most and the least advanced legislation in this area. Demographic characteristics collected include gender, age, occupation, marital status, religious affiliation and practice, age at completion of education, subjective membership in social class, political and trade union participation, home ownership, number of people in household, family income, home ownership, subjective size of community, and nationality. Selected standard Eurobarometer constructed variables and indices are also included
