Eurobarometer 55.2 was a special survey collected in 2001 and designed to elicit information on European experience and perception of science and technology. One question, of identical form in all states, asked respondents about their sources of information about science, and requested them to rank them in order of importance. The items were: Television, Radio, Press, Scientific Magazines, Internet, School and University.
