Abstract: The sixth round of Central and Eastern Eurobarometer surveys was carried out in Albania, Armenia, Belarus, Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Estonia, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM), Georgia, Hungary, Kazakhstan, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, the Russian Federation, Slovakia, Slovenia, and the Ukraine. Respondents were asked questions that appeared in earlier surveys in this series. These included items on whether respondents felt that things in their country were going in the right or wrong direction, how the financial situation of their household had changed in the last year and how it might change in the next year, how they felt about the creation of a free market economy, how economic reforms were going in their country, how satisfied they were with the way democracy was developing, how much respect there now was for human rights, their impressions of the aims and activities of the European Community after its name was changed to the European Union, which countries they believed their future was most closely tied to, whether their country or the European Union benefited most from the current relationship, their main sources of information about the activities of the Union, and which groups within their societies would likely benefit or lose out as ties between their country and the Union increased. Respondents also provided specific reasons behind their impressions of the aims and activities of the European Union, indicated their knowledge of the ''PHARE'' and ''TACIS'' programs and their sources of funding, and stated how they would vote if a referendum were held the next day on the questions of membership of the European Union and membership of NATO. Demographic data collected on participants include respondent's age, highest level of education completed, occupation, voting status, mother tongue and knowledge of other languages, nationality/ethnic background, vote intention, sex, region, size of locality, and income.
