AbstractThis round of Eurobarometer surveys diverged from the standard Eurobarometer measures and queried respondents on their opinions regarding radioactive waste, transport services, farm animal welfare, and means of payment. Topics: To start the interview, questions were asked regarding knowledge and support of radioactive waste disposal, as well as questions regarding the options of and preferences for nuclear energy. Respondents gave their views on the risks of radioactive waste disposal, the possibility of recycling noncontaminated materials from the nuclear industry, and the political and health-related consequences of handling dangerous waste. Next, questions were asked regarding transport services within the European Union (EU). Respondents gave their views on the rights of passengers, whether they were satisfied with the current transport services in EU countries, and their satisfaction with international travel within the EU. The third portion of the interview collected information on respondents´ views on the welfare of farm animals. Questions were asked pertaining to the purchase and consumption of food derived from farm animals, respondents´ views on the rights of farm animals, as well as their views and preferences regarding the protection of farm animals. Respondents gave their views on the purchase of eggs, meat, and milk from animal welfare-friendly production systems, their willingness to accept additional price premiums to ensure such production systems are used, and their perception of animal welfare in the EU versus other parts of the world. The last topic of the survey was means of payment. A series of questions addressed financial services in the EU, expectations of financial institutions, preferred payment options, and banking security. Demography: Age, gender, nationality, origin of birth (personal and parental), marital status, left-to-right political self-placement, occupation, age when they stopped full-time education, household composition, region, and telephone equipment.

Sampling Procedure Sampling Procedure
A multi-stage, random (probability) sampling design was used for this Eurobarometer. In the first stage, primary sampling units (PSU) were selected from each of the administrative regionals units in every country (Statistical Office of the European Community, EUROSTAT NUTS 2 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 starting addresses was selected from each sampled PSU, at random. Further addresses were chosen systematically using standard random route procedures as every Nth address from th initial address. In each household, a respondent was drawn, at random, following the closest birthday rule. No more than one interview was conducted in each household. They were supposed to have sufficient command of one of the respective national language(s) to answer the questionnaire. Separate samples were drawn for Northern Ireland and East Germany.

2013-4-8P7_PT REGION I - NUTS 2 (V427)Starting with Eurobarometer 62 the NUTS 2 REGIONS for PORTUGAL have changed. In accordance with the official EUROSTAT NUTS 2 version 2003 the region “LISBOA E VALE DO TEJO” is split up and the subregion “Lezíria do Tejo” reinstated to the “Alentejo” Region; “Médio Tejo” and “Oeste” are reinstated to the “Centro” Region. The documentation for NUTS 2 code 3 “Lisboa e Vale do Tejo” is not correct and should read “LISBOA” (NUTS2003-2010: PT17). Regions “CENTRO” and “ALENTEJO” do not change names but regional coverage (NUTS2003-2010: PT16 and PT18). The regions “NORTE” (PT11) and “ALGARVE” (PT15) remain unchanged. Starting with Eurobarometer 62 the autonomous regions AÇORES (PT20) and MADEIRA (PT30) are not covered anymore. This has been confirmed by TNS Opinion & Social as of March 26, 2013.

  •  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.
