Abstract: This round of Euro-Barometer surveys queried respondents on standard Euro-Barometer measures such as public awareness of and attitudes toward the Common Market and the European Union (EU), and focused on perceptions about and factors affecting blood and plasma donation. Questions solicited opinions about the way blood and plasma are collected and handled, reasons for donating, understanding of the differences between blood and plasma, the necessity of rewards for donating, and sources of information about blood or plasma donation. Respondents were also surveyed about their perceptions of product quality based on country of manufacture, cross-border purchases and customs experiences, a single European currency, women's opinions on EU matters, tobacco smoking habits, AIDS risks, and perceived cancer risks of food products. On EU matters, respondents were asked how well informed they felt about the EU, what sources of information about the EU they used, whether their country had benefited from being an EU member, and the extent of their personal interest in EU matters. This survey also includes respondent opinions and party preferences for the June 1994 European elections. Demographic and other background information was gathered on number of people residing in the home, size of locality, home ownership, trade union membership, region of residence, and occupation of the head of household, as well as the respondent's age, sex, marital status, education, occupation, work sector, religion, religiosity, subjective social class, left-right political self-placement, and opinion leadership.
