This is the website for the Public Opinion Analysis sector of the European Commission. Since 1973, the European Commission has been monitoring the evolution of public opinion in the Member States, thus helping the preparation of texts, decision-making and the evaluation of its work. Our surveys and studies address major topics concerning European citizenship: enlargement, social situation, health, culture, information technology, environment, the Euro, defence, etc.

2015 has been declared the European Year for Development. For the first time a European year will be looking at what the EU does outside its borders, raising awareness and engaging with citizens and the broader public on the role of the EU as a global player, around the motto ‘Our world, our dignity, our future’. This survey tests, among other things, Europeans' views on the main development challenges and their opinions regarding increasing aid or the importance of aid in general. A number of questions focused on how citizens think they can get personally involved themselves.
Travelling is an essential aspect of daily life for European citizens. Passenger rights protect citizens when travelling in the EU on all modes of transport (by plane, train, ship or long distance bus). This Eurobarometer survey assesses the use of transport services in the EU but also the knowledge and understanding European citizens have of their rights as passengers and how they can apply them. It also assesses in how far citizens are disturbed by transport noise.
This report presents the results of a Flash Eurobarometer survey into attitudes of Romanian and Bulgarian respondents towards the state of the judicial system and corruption in their country. It also shows the perception of EU support in this area through the Cooperation and Verification Mechanism. In Bulgaria only, the report also addresses the subject of organised crime.
Respondents are asked how seriously they take these issues, whether they feel the situation in their country has improved over the last five years and whether the EU ought to be involved in further monitoring and verification. It also brings the perception about the impact the EU has played so far and the attitudes towards its further involvement. The survey also measures general awareness of the EU’s Cooperation and Verification Mechanism.
In the fourth round of enlargement, Finland, Austria and Sweden joined the European Union on 1 January 1995, bringing the number of Member States to 15. These three countries were the first new countries to join the EU after the end of the Cold War.
This survey was commissioned to understand how people in these three countries view the EU and the impact of EU membership, twenty years after accession.
“The Promise of the EU” aims to develop a vision for the EU’s future based on three questions: How much unity do citizens want and what are the areas where more integration should take place? What would make the EU more democratic and how can EU politicians be made more accountable for the decisions they make? What is the right balance between responsibility and solidarity? The broad objectives of this study are to understand how people perceive the EU and what the European idea means to them, especially in the wake of the economic and financial crisis.
