THE INFLUENCE OF EU MEMBER COUNTRIESâ€™ ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT ON THEIR CITIZENSâ€™ PRO-ENVIRONMENTAL ATTITUDES Abstract: The present paper aims to determine the influence of EU member countriesâ€™ economic development on their citizensâ€™ pro-environmental attitudes using a path analysis. In this sense, we have used the results of the 2012 survey on the â€žAttitudes of Europeans towards building the single market for green productsâ€, as well as the 2012 statistical information referring to EU member countriesâ€™ economic development, provided by Eurostat. The results indicated which macroeconomic variables exert a significant influence on each pro-environmental attitudinal component. Future studies may consider using less macroeconomic variables in order to identify their influence on different pro-environmental attitudinal components
