Free Access to European Commission Public Opinion Poll results

While not a new resource, I only just came across this one today and it’s a terrific source of public opinion in Europe.

“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.”

The site provides free access to the full analytical  reports as well as summaries and factsheets arising from the polls that the Commission conducts.   Topics currently include public attitudes towards: the Euro, corruption, climate change, social security, tourism, economic crisis, higher education, employment and EU enlargement.  Most documents are available in several languages – almost always including English – and coverage extends back to 2000.
