A Special Eurobarometer survey was published on 3 March 2020 concerning the attitudes of citizens in the European Union (EU) on matters regarding digitalisation of their daily lives.

Further information:

Close to seven in ten respondents, consider themselves sufficiently skilled in the use of digital devices in their daily lives. When it comes to use of digital devices the survey shows that almost eight in ten respondents would like to oblige manufacturers to make digital devices easier to repair. However, this proportion decreases to four in ten, if that implies increase in the price. Regarding sharing and controlling of personal data, four in ten are willing to share their personal data securely to improve medical research and care, while about three in ten are willing to do so in exceptional situations. Just over six in ten respondents said that they would find having a single digital ID for all online services useful.
