This Flash Eurobarometer, “Quality of life in European cities” (No 366), was conducted at the request of the Directorate-General for Regional and Urban Policy to get a snapshot of people’s opinions on a range of urban issues. Earlier surveys were conducted in 2004, 2006 and 2009.
This survey included all capital cities of the countries concerned (except for Switzerland), together with between one and six more cities in the larger countries. In each city, around 500 citizens were interviewed.
A total of 79 European cities were used in this analysis. In addition to these, the surroundings areas of Athina, Lisboa, Manchester and Paris were analysed. The report therefore refers to “83 cities”, though a more accurate terminology would be “79 cities and 4 surrounding areas”.
Respondents were asked whether they agreed or disagreed with two specific statements regarding foreigners: firstly, that the presence of foreigners is good for their city; and, secondly, that foreigners who live in their city are well integrated.
