People’s attitudes towards the EU are likely to depend in part on what they think the consequences of leaving the EU will or might be. Will their country’s standing in the world be enhanced or diminished? Will immigration be increased or reduced? Would leaving be a risk or an opportunity?
This section contains questions that tap people’s perceptions of what will or would happen if their country left the EU, whether the consequences of leaving would be good or bad, and how sure they are what the consequences would be.
Note that questions that refer specifically to the economic consequences of leaving are to be found at The economic debate while perceptions of the consequences of staying in the EU are at EU membership: good or bad deal?
