Public Opinion in EU Regions
From Press Release:
Public perception across the EU of the current economic situation and quality of life indicate major variations not only at national level but even more so at a regional level. Results also show that representatives from all levels of government have a crucial role to play to ensure that Europe is communicated effectively locally.
These are some of the main findings of the first ever Eurobarometer survey conducted at a regional level...
The Special Eurobarometer survey offers for the first time a detailed view of the European public perception at a regional level. Conducted between 20 August and 15 September 2012, over 50,000 EU citizens were interviewed coming from 170 regions in the 27 EU Member States. Mercedes Bresso, Committee of the Regions (CoR) First Vice-President, said of the results that: "It is important to make the effort to not always reflect from a national perspective. That is why I am very glad that for the first time this Eurobarometer takes a regional point of view enabling us to better understand public perception from Europe's regions".
The data overwhelmingly demonstrates that unemployment is currently the top priority and main concern across all the EU regions, with the exception of certain parts of Germany, and that environment has almost gone off the agenda of most citizens.
