To coincide with the forthcoming European Parliament elections, the European Commission has just published a Special Eurobarometer survey titled “Europeans 2014”.

The survey provides a snapshot of current public opinion on the economic outlook in Europe and the future of the EU. The responses show that optimism and trust are on the rise.

Here are some of the main findings:

  1. Outlook on the economy: Confidence is growing
  2. Impact of the crisis: Optimism continues to rise
  3. “My voice counts in the EU”: Highest increase in 10 years
  4. Methodology: Representative samples from all Member States for more than 40 years

The Eurobarometer survey is based on a survey carried out in all 28 member States in the second half of March 2014 with almost 28,000 Europeans taking part in it.
