Summary
This round of Eurobarometer surveys queried respondents on standard Eurobarometer measures such as public awareness of and attitudes toward the European Union (EU), and also focused on environmental issues and consumer associations. In terms of environmental issues, respondents were questioned regarding whether environmental protection and the fight against pollution were immediate and urgent problems or problems for the future. Those queried were asked about the degree of concern they had for issues such as the disappearance of certain types of plants and the tropical forests, depletion of natural resources, global warming, pollution, destruction of the ozone layer, urban problems, nuclear power stations and radioactive waste, and genetically modified organisms. Respondents identified the area where they lived and commented on whether they had reason to complain about the quality of tap water, noise, air pollution, waste disposal, lack of green spaces, landscape damage, traffic problems, quality of food products, and the organization of civil defense in the face of natural and technological disasters. Other questions covered the respondents' general awareness of some environmental issues, the sources they used when looking for information on the environment, which sources they would trust, and whether public bodies were acting effectively to protect the environment at the local, regional, and national levels. This survey also addressed consumer associations in detail. Questions were asked concerning what respondents thought should be a priority for consumer associations, problems facing consumer associations, and whether they were members of any consumer associations. Opinions were also elicited regarding whether consumer associations should distribute information, provide legal advice, publish magazines, lobby the government, or represent consumers' interests. Other questions included how consumer associations should be funded, whether the respondent would pay for the information provided by consumer associations, and how much they would pay. Demographic and other background information provided includes respondent's age, gender, education, and marital status, as well as household income, number of people residing in the home, occupation, religion, and region of residence
