Eurobarometer Reports on Young People

The Young Europeans Reports is a series of representative surveys of young Europeans (15-24) conducted on behalf of the European Commission, and is part of the Eurobarometer. While the first survey, conducted in 1982, covered only ten countries [The Young Eurpeans, Dec 1982, Prepared by Helene Riffault on behalf of the European Community, http://ec.europa.eu/public_opinion/archives/ebs/ebs_18_en.pdf] , the second and third included 12 members of the European Community, and fourth included 15 EU Countries countries: Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Spain, France, Italy, Luxembourg, The Netherlands, Austria, Portugal, and Sweden, and the United Kingdom. The surveys repeat many of the same questions, thus allowing comparison over time. They are each carried out in conjunction with the large and more general (i.e. representing all Europeans over 15, not just youth) Eurobarometer surveys, thus allowing comparison between the young population and general population.

Youth in New Europe Report

The Youth in New Europe is a study of youth (aged 15-24) in EU candidate coutries commissioned by the European Commission. It is based on the survey model of the Standard Eurobarometer, and thus allows a unique comparison between the societies which are recent members of the EU (and which are still striving to become members of the EU) and the societies of the established EU. One can compare the results of the Youth in New Europe to the other Eurobarometer Reports on Young People, however Youth in new Europe is distinct from Young People series.

The Candidate Countries Eurobarometer (CC-EB) continuously tracks support for EU membership, and the change of attitudes related to European issues, in the Candidate Countries. The Youth in New Europe report covers the results of the survey conducted in April 2003 in the 13 Candidate Countries. These countries, and the number of interviewed youth in each, are:

In each of the 13 Candidate Countries, the survey was carried out by national institutes associated with andcoordinated by The Gallup Organization, Hungary. [Eurobarometer 2003.1, Published July 2003, http://ec.europa.eu/public_opinion/archives/cceb/2003/2003.1_youth_analytical_report_en.pdf ]
