The data are part of Central Union for Child Welfare study that investigates the use of corporal punishment in upbringing and attitudes towards it in Finland. Telephone interviews were carried out in June 2008 as part of a Telebus study conducted by Taloustutkimus.
The data comprise one statement: "Using corporal punishment to discipline children is acceptable, at least in exceptional circumstances", and the respondents were asked to what extent they agreed or disagreed with it.
Background variables included, among others, the respondent's region (NUTS3) of residence, municipality type, gender, age, level of education, economic activity and occupational status, household composition, employment status, use of telephone and mobile phone, and number and ages of children living in the household.
