For this survey carried out between 16 and 19 January 2015, 1 000 respondents in Lithuania were interviewed by phone. Following Lithuania's changeover to the euro on 1 January 2015 and the ending of the dual circulation period two weeks later, citizens from different social and demographic groups replied to 26 questions focusing on issues ranging from perception of and support for the euro to how Lithuanian citizens felt informed about the common currency.
Questions included how citizens saw the consequences for themselves, their country and the EU, and whether they experienced any problems during the changeover period. Other questions looked at how citizens assessed various channels of the information campaign.
The survey finds that 63% of Lithuanians think that the euro will have positive consequences for Lithuania and that 54% see positive consequences also for themselves. A substantial majority of citizens in Lithuania (92%) feels informed about the euro, with 34% saying they feel very well informed.
