Description:

The survey forms part of the project ´Local government - an evaluation of the reform of amalgamation of municipalities´.

It also deals with the part the political parties play in the parliamentary arena in the municipalities. Another topic is the reasons for people to leave their municipal positions of trust. The study is partly a replication of Local representatives 1968 (SSD 0110).
