Abstract: This study is part of an on-going program of public opinion research sponsored by the European Community and carried out in its ten member-nations. Respondents were interviewed in April 1982. Respondents were asked about the sources of their information on the European Community and their opinions concerning media coverage of the EEC. Resondents were also asked a series of questions concerning energy problems and use, with particular attention paid to nuclear power. Opinions were obtained concerning the proper level of government -- local, national, or European -- to perform various regulatory functions. The survey also queried respondents concerning their hopes and fears for the future. Euro-Barometer 17 continued to monitor attitudes on European integration, life satisfaction, and social goals. In addition, a special sample of youths aged 15 through 24 was asked about their education and employment prospects and about their lives and interests. The codebook for this study is available in machine-readable form. The dataset may be obtained in either card-image or OSIRIS format, the latter having a logical record length of 295 per respondent. Approximately 255 variables are included for 11,772 respondents.
