Summary
This round of Eurobarometer surveys diverged from the standard Eurobarometer measures and queried respondents on their opinions regarding the future of Europe, consumer protection for transborder purchases, family planning, and overall opinions and experiences of making transborder purchases within the internal market of the European Union (EU). The first part of the interview concerned the future of Europe. To start the interview, respondents were asked questions regarding their knowledge and support of EU enlargement, as well as their interest in domestic and European affairs. Respondents gave their views on decision-making at the European level, the effects of European unification, the possible harmonization of social welfare systems within the EU, and the impact of the euro. Next, questions were asked regarding consumer protection in the internal market of the EU. Respondents gave their views on consumer security for transborder purchases, the return of products within a cooling-off period, consumer contract terms, and the purchasing of financial services. Questions were also asked regarding the receipt of unsolicited advertisements that may be fraudulent, deceptive or misleading, respondents' experiences with cross-border shopping, the purchase of travel packages within the EU, and the overall provision of safety information for consumers. The third portion of the interview collected information on respondents' views in regard to family planning. Questions were asked regarding ideal family size, the timing of giving birth to and raising children, decision-making in having another child, and the future of respondents' household situations. Respondents gave their views on the roles of men and women in raising children, the ideal ages for men and women to have children, and solutions for potential shortages in the workforce. The last topic of the survey addressed consumers' overall opinions and experiences within the internal market of the EU. A series of questions addressed the impact of the European Single Market, transborder purchases of goods and services, and the potential for travel or change of residency to another member state in order to work or to attend school. Respondents gave their views concerning citizens' rights in the Single Market, seeking assistance within the Single Market, as well as their preferences in taking out a mortgage or insurance policy in another member state of the EU. Background information includes respondent's age, gender, parental origin of birth, marital status, left/right political self-placement, occupation, age when they stopped full-time education, household composition, national provenance, telephone equipment, attendance at religious services, and possession of major consumer durables
