Abstract

The survey charted Finnish attitudes to energy policy. 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. Furthermore, respondents evaluated whether a merger between Neste and Imatran Voima would be beneficial. Opinions on the likelihood of the exceptionally hot summer in Finland being caused by the greenhouse effect were charted. Respondents were also asked in what direction electric power production should be developed in Finland.

Background variables included respondents' sex, age, region of residence, occupational group, basic and vocational education, political party preference and number of inhabitants in respondents' municipality of residence.
