EB - Eurobarometer
The Eurobarometer survey is designed to provide regular monitoring of public social and political attitudes in the EU through specific trend questions. Therefore, the general aim of EB is to know the attitudes and evaluations of European citizens about large general themes. The questions concern to the European integration issues, but sometimes they regard also specific problem about single country or common problems of economic, political or social nature.
The arguments of Eurobarometer 87.1 are as follows:
- Two years until the 2019 European elections: European Parliament Eurobarometer: Information on and role of the EP, knowledge about European institutions and the EP, present and future of the EP, European values and policies, European Identity, media use.
- Attitudes of Europeans towards tobacco and electronic cigarettes: Smoking habits regarding boxed cigarettes, hand-rolled cigrarettes, cigars, cigarillos, pipe, water pipe, oral/chewing/nasal tabacco and electronic cigarettes. Efforts to quit smoking, passive smoking inside and banning advertisements for tobacco products.
- Climate change: Appraisal of the problem, responsibility and political measures, personal action, the national government’s energy targets.
- Attitudes towards the impact of digitisation and automation on daily life: Awareness of, usage of and attitudes towards autonomous systems: robots, artificial intelligence, driverless cars and civil drones; Cyber security, online social networks and health services.
- Coach services: Usage frequency, reasons for using coaches, appraisal of services.

Question module QA ‘Two years until the 2019 European elections’ was implemented on behalf of and financed by the European Parliament. It partly replicates questions formerly asked in the framework of Eurobarometer 86.1 and 84.1.
Question module QB ‘Attitudes of Europeans towards tobacco and electronic cigarettes’ is partly based on questions asked in the context of the corresponding module surveyed in the framework of Eurobarometer 82.4.
Question module QC ‘Climate change’ is partly based on questions asked in the context of the corresponding module surveyed in the framework of Eurobarometer 83.4.
Question module QD ‘Attitudes towards the impact of digitisation and automation on daily life’ is partly based on questions asked in the context of the corresponding module surveyed in the framework of Eurobarometer 82.4.
Question module QE ‘Coach services’ was newly introduced.
69 respondents from BE indicate that they trust stories published on online social networks (coded 1 (Mentioned) in qd5.1 to qd5.5), and at the same are coded 1 (Mentioned) in qd5.6 (“ONLINE SOC NETWORKS STORY TRUST: GENERALLY DO NOT TRUST”) even though code 6 was specified as exclusive in the questionnaire.
70 respondents from PT are coded missing in qb4b (“SMOKING HABITS FORMERLY: …”) due to a translation problem. This also affects qb5b (“SMOKING HABITS FORMERLY: CIGARETTES PER DAY”) and qb6b (“CIGARETTE CHARS FORMERLY: …”).
