The main goal of this article is to compare the opinions of citizens from four European countries (Germany, Great Britain, Spain and Poland) regarding basic income in the broader context, among other things, of welfare regimes these countries represent. Statistical analyses of the Europeans’ attitudes towards basic income are based on interviews carried out in 28 European Union countries. Four countries, representing four different types of welfare regimes that can be found in the literature (the Nordic model has been excluded due to the sample size), and differing in economic welfare as well as historical experiences in regard to socio-economic system formation, have been selected for further analysis. Our analysis is based on special use of the single posthoc test with the Bonferroni adjustment for evaluating cross-country differences in basic income support and use of logistic regression for verifying the within-country impact of particular effects on basic income attitudes. The results of our analysis do not confirm that either the type of welfare regime or the level of social services in particular countries have a significant impact on attitudes toward basic income attitudes. However, we found the clear and direct impact of basic income awareness on supporting the programme.

Główny cel artykułu dotyczy porównania opinii obywatelek i obywateli czterech krajów europejskich (Polski, Wielkiej Brytanii, Hiszpanii i Niemiec) na temat bezwarunkowego dochodu podstawowego w szerszym kontekście modeli państw dobrobytu, które te państwa reprezentują (lub do których są zaliczane). Podstawą analiz statystycznych stosunku Europejczyków do idei dochodu podstawowego będą badania sondażowe zrealizowane przez niemiecką firmę badawczą Dalia Research w 28 krajach starego kontynentu. Do szczegółowych eksploracji wybrane zostały cztery wyżej wymienione państwa, ponieważ reprezentują one odmienne typy reżimów dobrobytu występujące w literaturze przedmiotu (model nordycki został pominięty ze względu na niską liczebność próby badawczej), oraz różnią się pod względem warunków gospodarczych i doświadczeń historycznych w zakresie tworzenia formacji społeczno-gospodarczej. Nasze ustalenia opierają się na analizie statystycznej ze szczególnym zastosowaniem single post-hoc test z korektą Bonferroniego do oceny międzykrajowych różnic w poparciu dochodu podstawowego oraz zastosowaniu regresji logistycznej do weryfikacji wewnątrzkrajowego wpływu poszczególnych skutków na postawy względem dochodu podstawowego.
