Perception of EU action as adequate at present: percentage points difference between 2016 and 2018

Back in 2016, energy supply and security was one of only two policy areas (together with equal treatment of men and women) in which more citizens rate current EU action as adequate (45 %) than as insufficient (37 %). There has been no change in the share of Europeans evaluating the current EU involvement as adequate or as insufficient.
Despite this lack of change on a European level, there are some significant changes in certain Member States. The most prominent is the decrease in the share of citizens evaluating EU involvement in energy supply and security as adequate in the UK (a drop of 8 percentage points) and Latvia (a drop of 7 percentage points). The increase in the evaluation of EU action as adequate is most significant in Romania (a 12 percentage point increase) and Hungary (an 11 percentage point increase).
