FSD2355 Deliberative Discussion on Nuclear Power 2006
The data contain the responses of five surveys conducted in connection with the deliberative experiment called Citizen Deliberation, an experiment on democratic deliberation culminating in an actual deliberation day organised in Turku in November 2006.
Data in these series also include questions on the theme.
People interested in finding data on environment and energy should also take a look at data available at other data archives around the world.
In Finland, the Language Bank of Finland also provides services to researchers and archives audio and video material. Services of various European social science data archives can be accessed through the website of CESSDA. The UK Data Service has, among other things, a wide variety of excellent qualitative data. Another good source of data is the German GESIS - Leibniz Institute for the Social Sciences. The extensive holdings of the American ICPSR are also well worth searching.
