The national report outlines the main findings of Wave 100 of the Standard Eurobarometer. Fieldwork was conducted from the 23rd October 2023 to 11th November 2023. A total of 504 interviews were conducted with respondents residing in Malta, aged 15 years and over.
During 2023, the Maltese economy continued to grow but at a reduced rate. The economic environment was characterised by high inflation and increasing prices. This has tended to generate a negative sentiment which is likely to have had an impact on the results of the survey. A negative sentiment may have also been generated by a number of challenges related to aspects such as the environment, building development and public procurement.
The report covers a number of topics, namely perceptions on the respondents’ own personal situation, the economic situation of the country and of the European Union; the policies of the European Union; immigration; trust in the institutions; and the media and sources of news. It also includes the opinions of Maltese respondents on Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and the EU and Malta’s response to it.
