Summary
This round of Eurobarometer surveys queried respondents on standard Eurobarometer measures, such as how satisfied they were with their present lives, whether they attempted to persuade others close to them to share their views on subjects they held strong opinions about, and whether they discussed political matters. Additional questions focused on respondents' knowledge of and opinions on the European Union (EU), including how well informed they felt about the EU, what sources of information about the EU they used, and whether their country had benefited from being an EU member. Another major focus of the surveys was globalization. Respondents were asked about the effects of globalization and trade liberalization, whether the EU was in favor of international free trade, and which institution should take the effects of globalization under control. Those polled presented their knowledge of the World Trade Organization, gave their opinions about who was the largest exporter of products and services in the world, specified the aspects of trade negotiations that should be considered by the EU, and commented on whether it was good that the EU negotiated international trade issues on behalf of all EU member states. Humanitarian aid was another major topic of the surveys. Respondents were queried as to which institutions funding humanitarian aid they knew about, how well informed they felt about the Humanitarian Aid Office (ECHO), which sources of information about ECHO they used, whether European citizens should be informed about aid activities funded by the EU, and, if so, what sorts of information should be available. Questions were also posed regarding whether it was important to fund humanitarian aid activities outside the EU, whether humanitarian aid was more effective when provided by each government separately or by the EU collectively, and whether the EU should increase its spending on humanitarian aid activities. Those polled were also asked about the single European currency, effects of the EU enlargement, common EU foreign policy and defense and security policy, whether the EU should have a constitution, what languages they spoke, and how often they watched news on TV, read news in papers, and listened to news on the radio. Demographic and other background information provided includes respondent's age, gender, nationality, marital status, left-right political self-placement, occupation, age at completion of education, household income, region of residence, and subjective size of community
