Further Remarks

NotesThe sample is not representative for the European population and thus not comparable with the remaining Flash Eurobarometers. Each national sample (among the small countries approx. 80, among the larger between 125 and 185) was two-part: besides the usual sampling procedure of population 15 years and older for the rest of the Flash Eurobarometers, the other half was specially selected for persons who daily have much to do with money, such as e.g. cashiers, shop owners, taxi drivers, bank employees and waiters. The number of respondents was altogether about 1900. Since the objective of this investigation was not a representative survey but the assessment of the nine different coin series in comparison, the dataset can also be analysed at the level of the judgement on a series. This results in about 17000 evaluations of coin series.

  •  EB - Flash Eurobarometer
    The Flash Eurobarometer were launched by the European Commission in the late eighties, turning out a Monthly Monitor between in 1994 and 1995. These “small scale” surveys are conducted in all EU member states at times, occasionally reducing or enlarging the scope of countries as a function of specific topics. The typical sample size is 500-1000 respondents per country and interviews are usually conducted by phone in the respective national language. The Flash Eurobarometer include series on special topics (Common Currency, EU Enlargement, Information Society, Entrepreneurship, Innovation) as well as special target group polls, particularly company managers with enterprise related topics.
