This survey forms part of the project ´Local government autonomy - local government boundaries´. Questions were asked about the assignment, opinion on the approaching amalgamation of municipalities and possible transmission of local government tasks to the State. Furthermore there were questions about the respondent´s attitude towards an increase or decrease of local authority achievements in a number of areas and also the respondent´s view on the attitudes of the electorate. The study was partly replicated in Local politicians 1979-1980 (SSD 0101).
