Abstract: The fifth round of Central and Eastern Euro-Barometer surveys was carried out in Albania, Armenia, Belarus, Bulgaria, 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, and how much respect there now was for human rights. They were also asked about 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 or not 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. Demographic data collected on participants include information on the respondent's age, highest level of education completed, occupation, voting status, nationality/ethnic background, vote intention, sex, region, and income.
