AbstractAttitudes towards the unification of Europe. Topics: In parallel to the European Commuinities Study 1970, this survey queried respondents in Great Britain on their attitudes towards the unification of Europe and the British Common Market membership. They were also asked for political parties and trade unions attitudes towards the European unification. A further focus was on the respondents attitudes towards the British government, politicians and political parties. They were queried on party preferences and vote intention, appropriate governmental priorities, and on political (materialist/postmaterialist) value priorities. Church attendance and religious denomination were also ascertained, as well as important things to save money for. Demographics: Sex, age, education, social class, etnicity, region, and trade union membership.

  •  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.
