Summary
This round of Eurobarometer surveys focused on health issues, public security, awareness of consumer protection legislation, sickness benefits allocation, and attitudes toward the police. In addition, respondents were queried on a few standard Eurobarometer measures, such as whether they attempted to persuade others close to them to share their views on subjects they held strong opinions about and whether they discussed political matters, and how they viewed the need for societal change. Respondents provided information about their personal health care, including their general state of health, number of hospital stays, types of examinations received, and whether they had been on a diet, as well as their perceptions of heart disease. Respondents also answered questions about the health care system in their countries and indicated how well health care was run, to whom the government should provide health care, whether the government should spend more money on health care, and if they were willing to pay more taxes or have the government spend less on other things in order to contribute to health care. A number of questions concentrated on sickness benefits allocation. Questions concerning public security included how safe respondents felt walking alone near their homes, how often they had witnessed drug-related problems near their homes, if their homes had been broken into, and whether they had been attacked or seriously threatened. Respondents were also asked about their awareness of consumer protection legislation adopted or introduced by the European Union (EU) in areas such as import, postal services, toy safety, pricing, packaging, advertising, contracts, holiday conditions, and court proceedings. Opinions were also elicited on the police, type of contact respondents had with the police, and the cooperation between the police forces from EU member states. In addition, respondents answered a series of questions concerning their views on employment, unemployment, and gender equality. These data are reported in a separate collection, EUROBAROMETER 44.3OVR: EMPLOYMENT, UNEMPLOYMENT, AND GENDER EQUALITY, FEBRUARY-APRIL 1996 (ICPSR 2443). Demographic and other background information provided includes respondent's age, gender, nationality, marital status, left-right political self-placement, occupation, age at completion of education, household income, size of household, car ownership, region of residence, and subjective size of community
