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 argument of Eurobarometer 89.2 is as follow:

  • European Parliament Eurobarometer: Information on and role of the European Parliament; European policy priorities; awareness of, knowledge about, attitudes towards European Parliament Elections and the election of the President of the European Commission; personal voting behaviour in European and national elections; attitudes towards European Union membership; democracy satisfaction and emergence of new parties and movements

    Question module QA was implemented on behalf of and financed by the European Parliament. It partly replicates questions formerly asked in the Special Eurobarometers 88.1 and 87.1  and introduces many new questions.

    No data are available for protocol items p8, p9, p10 and p11.

    Starting with Eurobarometer 89.2 no separate sample is drawn for Northern Ireland, which is now covered by the sample for the United Kingdom. Accordingly, the formerly available weight variable w4 “WEIGHT UNITED KINGDOM” is obsolete and no longer included in the dataset.

    Questions qa5 to qa7 are not part of the basic and national questionnaires and have not been part of the dataset delivery. These questions are also not presented in the report and table volumes.
