Abstract

In the survey, the respondents' attitude towards different political parties in Finland was canvassed, along with their opinions about how the government and the opposition parties had succeeded in their tasks. The respondents were also asked to estimate the significance of the party leader to a party, and tell how well various characteristics describe different parties. Voting behaviour was charted by asking for what party the respondent voted in the 1992 municipal elections and in the 1991 parliamentary elections, and what party would he/she vote for if the parliamentary elections were held at the time of the survey. The respondents were also presented with several statements relating to society and politics and asked to what extent they agreed. Furthermore, the respondents were asked whether they took care of buying groceries or cooking in the household.

Background variables included, among others, the respondent's year of birth, gender, marital status, age group, annual gross income of the household, type of municipality of residence, province of residence, basic and vocational education, main economic activity, weekly working hours, employer type, trade union membership, left-right political self-placement, self-perceived social class, and mother tongue.
