Culture is the first issue to create a feeling of community among EU citizens

According to the latest edition of the Eurobarometer, published on 3 March 2015, 30% of the 1000 people interviewed in November 2014 in each of the 28 EU countries consider that culture is the first among the issues that most create a feeling of community among European citizens, ahead of the economy (24%), sports (24%), history (23%), healthcare and religion. Culture was already at the top of these issues, in the spring edition in 2014 and in 2013.  “Culture comes systematically out on top,” according to the Budapest Observatory that reported on this recurrent poll published by the European Commission. The Eurobarometer standard was created in 1973.
