Abstract

The survey studied Finnish political attitudes and opinions on political parties. Respondents were asked how favourable their opinion was regarding the Finnish Social Democratic Party, the Centre Party of Finland, the National Coalition Party, the Left Alliance and the Green League. A number of attributes were listed and respondents were asked to which party they could be applied. Voting behaviour was studied by asking how tempted they would be to vote for different parties if the Parliamentary elections were held at the time of the survey and which party did they vote for in the 2000 Parliamentary elections. Respondents were asked whether they support any party at that moment. Respondents rated how successful the current government has been in individual matters and as a whole. In addition, they evaluated the importance of political leaders of the above-mentioned parties.

Background variables included respondents' year of birth, marital status, place of residence, occupational group, employment sector, trade union membership, mother tongue, household gross income, party of choice in both EU and national parliamentary elections in 1999 and political orientation on the left-right axis.
