Ever wondered what Europeans feel about robots?

Do you need real people giving real opinions on issues relating to the European Union for your research?

Eurobarometer is a series of surveys regularly performed on behalf of the European Commission since 1973 and is a useful way for monitoring public opinion over time.

The Standard Eurobarometer survey is carried out each autumn and spring. The range of questions has been expanded over the years but most of the survey has remained the same so that data is comparable over time.

Special Eurobarometer Surveys investigate attitudes to a wide range of topics.  Recent ones have been on attitudes to data protection, passenger rights, tobacco, humanitarian aid and security.

Flash Eurobarometer Surveys are ad-hoc telephone interviews conducted at the request of any part of the European Commission. These give results relatively quickly and focus on specific groups.
