Europeans and Biotechnology in 2010
Eurobarometer 73.1 is the seventh in a series of surveys of public perceptions of the Life Sciences and Biotechnology. This new survey covers the now 27 Member States of the European Union plus Croatia, Iceland, Norway, Switzerland and Turkey.
The report is divided into three sections. The first provides an analytic description of Europeans' perceptions of biotechnology in 2010, with, where possible, comparable data from previous surveys to illustrate trends. This is followed by two Annexes, containing the questionnaire and a codebook of basic descriptive statistics for each question by country, with a technical note including details of survey sampling and weighting. In the report we present results across the 32 countries. We also give Europewide summaries for the current 27 EU Member States, with samples weighted to reflect their relative population sizes.
