Summary
This round of Eurobarometer surveys diverged from standard trend questions, instead focusing on health issues, cross-border purchases, and national identities. European Union (EU) respondents provided information on their health status, including whether they had long-standing illness that limited their work or daily activities. They also answered questions about the health care system in their countries and indicated how well health care was run, whether the government should spend more money on health care, and if they were willing to pay more taxes to contribute to health care. They were also asked how well they were getting by with their households' income, who should pay for taking care of elderly parents, and who should decide what long-term care services an elderly person needs. Another major focus of the surveys was cross-border purchases. EU respondents were asked whether in the last 12 months they bought anything for private use in stores located in other European Union countries, and if so, how they bought the product and how much they paid for it. They were also asked whether the introduction of the euro and the possibility of buying online made them more interested in buying products or services from other EU countries, whether in the last 12 months they heard or saw an advertisement from another EU country, whether they would be more or less confident buying different products or services in another EU country, and what factors would affect their level of confidence. European Union citizens and residents of three European Union candidate countries (the Czech Republic, Hungary, and Poland) described how close they felt to the inhabitants of the city/village/region where they lived, their national fellows, EU citizens and other European residents, Arabs, Turks, Russians, United States' citizens, Gypsies, Jews, and others. They also selected from a list those things or feelings that were crucial to sense of belonging to their nation and to Europe. EU respondents were asked what the most important issues facing their countries were and what their governments should spend extra money on. Additionally, respondents indicated whether they were satisfied with their lives, and the state of the economy, laws, and public transport in their countries. The background information collected includes respondents' 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 of residence
