Candidates for the European Parliament Study 1979
The respondents were selected from the candidates running for the European Parliament 1979. The number of candidates varied from country to country and included 62 percent of those who were elected to the European Parliament. The study focused on the reasons respondents had for choosing to become candidates, and their views on the goals, priorities, and powers of the European Parliament. The study was designed to permit comparison of opinions between the general public and candidates, and it includes a large number of questions that were also administered to the general public in Eurobarometer 11.
