BRUSSELS, July 24 (Xinhua) -- Only 51 percent of Europeans are in favor of the euro and only 62 percent of those living in the euro zone supports the single currency, according to the latest Eurobarometer survey released here on Tuesday.

More than half of the Europeans do not know what the rights are , although six out of ten citizens in the EU feel "European" and want to know more about their rights, said the survey.

The results came during the 2013 European Year of Citizens, a year dedicated to improving the awareness about the rights of European citizens. In addition, EU institutions are scheduled to hold general election next year, facing multiple challenges after years of economic crises.

The survey also showed that nearly six out of ten identify the free movement of people, goods and services as the most positive result of the European integration project.

The survey was conducted through face-to-face interviews in May among nearly 32,700 people across member states and in candidate countries.
