AbstractThis Eurobarometer is focusing on youth attitudes toward drugs. During the fieldwork for Eurobarometer 57.2 (see Eurobarometer 57.2: Health Issues, Cross-Border Purchases, and National Identities, April-June 2002 [ZA3640]), an oversample of young respondents, aged 15-24, was added to the basic sample, in order to obtain a total of at least 450 young respondents per country. Topics: An additional set of questions was administered to these young respondents eliciting responses on why people experiment with drugs, the main reasons why some people find it hard to stop using drugs, the consequences drug use may cause, the most effective ways of tackling drug-related problems, and the most dangerous drugs. They were also asked who they would turn to if they wanted to know more about drugs, whether it was easy to get drugs, whether people should be punished for using drugs, whether there should be drug testing at school or work, whether they had tried drugs or knew somebody who had, and whether they smoked cigarettes and drank alcohol. Demography: Age, gender, nationality, marital status, left-right political self-placement, occupation, age at completion of education, household income, type and size of locality, and region.

Sampling Procedure Sampling Procedure
A multi-stage sampling design was used for this Eurobarometer. In the first stage, primary sampling units (PSU) were selected from each of the administrative regions in every country (i.e., Statistical Office of the European Community, EUROSTAT regions or equivalent). PSU selection was systematic with probability proportional to population size, from sampling frames stratified by the degree of urbanization. In the next stage, a cluster of addresses was selected from each sampled PSU. Addresses were chosen systematically using standard random route procedures, beginning with an initial address selected at random. In each household, a respondent was selected, by a random procedure. Up to three recalls were made to obtain an interview with the selected respondent. No more than one interview was conducted in each household. Separate samples were drawn for Northern Ireland and East-Germany.

  •  EB - Standard and Special Eurobarometer
    Since the early nineteen seventies the European Commission´s “Standard and Special Eurobarometer” are regularly monitoring the public opinion in the European Union member countries at times. Interviews are conducted face-to-face, in each spring and each autumn, at all times based on new samples with a size 1000 respondents per country. Separate samples are drawn for Northern Ireland and East Germany. After the EU enlargement in 2004, remaining and new Candidate Countries are also regularly included in selected surveys. The Standard Eurobarometer modules ask for attitudes towards European unification, institutions and policies, complemented by measurements for general socio-political orientations, as well as by respondent and household demographics. Intermittently special Eurobarometer modules extensively address topics, such as environment, science and technology, health or family issues, social or ethnic exclusion, quality of life etc. The “European Communities Studies” 1970-1973 can be considered forerunner studies, as well the “Attitudes towards Europe” from 1962.
