The survey studied attitudes of the Finns towards European Union and integration.

In addition, the respondents were asked to assess various statements pertaining to Finland's EU membership, decision-making in the EU, and the EMU. Furthermore, the respondents were asked what aspects should be emphasised in the development of the Northern Dimension.
