FSD1307 Energy Attitudes of the Finns 1994shortcuts: data collection | citation | publications
The survey charted Finnish attitudes to energy production and energy strategy. The data are part of an extensive survey series launched in 1983. Respondents' conceptions, opinions, beliefs, assessments, attitudes and knowledge about various energy issues were studied by presenting several statements relating to energy production. Respondents were asked in what direction electric power production should be developed in Finland. In addition, different energy sources (e.g. natural gas, wood energy, hydroelectric power) were evaluated in terms of production reliability, environmental friendliness, costs, and degree of risk. Respondents were also asked which would be a better alternative as the energy source of a new hypothetical power plant: nuclear energy or coal.
Background variables included respondents' sex, age, region of residence, basic and vocational education, occupational group, political party preference and number of inhabitants in respondents' municipality of residence.
