Coverage


Data was collected between May 5th and June 11th, 2006 Sample size: 24,815, anticipated country sample was 1,000


The first Special Eurobarometer survey was conducted in 1970, but this particular survey was first carried out in 2006.


population size, population density and urbanisation


multi-stage, random (probability) sample


Used NUTS II to divide the regional units The then-25 EU Member states participated in addition to Bulgaria, Romania, Turkey and Croatia


15+


The Eurobarometer main focus is on work and productivity and to a lesser extent on training. It examines perceptions on employment, flexible labour market possibilities and social protection. More specifically, the survey provides data about how people view the current labour situation, as well as how they feel about their job prospects and employment security. This Eurobarometer is particularly useful in understanding how older people view their security in the work place.

Applicability


Provides information on how people feel about the employment situation in Europe and their home countries, and allows for a cross-country comparison. Since in 2011 a very similar Eurobarometer was conducted, perhaps the greatest strength of this survey is the possibility to examine changes over time. Yet, it should be also noted that the latest survey from 2011 has more specific questions related to the current economic crisis.
