Radiation questions covered information sources regarding exposure risks and radioactivity levels, satisfaction with information sources, and opinions about radioactivity and exposure risks. Demographic and other background information was gathered on number of people residing in the home, size of locality, region of residence, and occupation of the head of household, as well as the respondent's age, sex, marital status, education, occupation, left-right political self-placement, and ownership of durables.
