Abstract: This study is part of an ongoing program of public opinion research sponsored by the European Community. Respondents for Euro-Barometer 8 were interviewed in November 1977. The study contains 8,826 respondents and 143 variables, some of which continue the series of items on feelings toward European integration and the European Community that have been asked in earlier Euro-Barometers. Attitudes toward the forthcoming European Parliamentary elections are a particular focus of the survey. A number of questions are asked about satisfaction with work and feelings about retirement. The satisfaction of housewives with their work and their possible desire for work outside the home are also explored. Other questions probe the respondents' feelings about men helping with housework and the role of women as active participants in politics.
