Description:

This survey forms part of the project 'Local government autonomy - local government boundaries' and the general purpose of the survey was to supplement Local elections 1966 (SSD 0111) with information from an area with extensive population movements where more than half of the population moved to Stockholm the previous ten years. The respondents were asked about their 'moving history', satisfaction with present residence and opinion on moving to another area. Other question dealt with knowledge about and opinion on the plans of a Greater Stockholm Council. Furthermore there are information about the respondent's gender, age, marital status, occupation and income as well as voting behaviour in the 1964 and 1966 elections.

Sampling procedure:

I Storstockholmsområdet ansågs följande kommuner ingå: Boo, Botkyrka, Danderyd, Djursholm, Ekerö, Färingsö, Grödinge, Gustavsberg, Huddinge, Järfälla, Lidingö, Märsta, Nacka, Salem, Saltsjöbaden, Sollentuna, Solna, Stocksund, Sundbyberg, Tyresö, Täby, Upplands-Väsby, Vallentuna, Värmdö, Västerhaninge, österhaninge, österåker samt Stockholms stad. Från dessa kommuner, utom Stockholms stad som ansågs given, gjordes ett urval. De ovan nämnda 28 kommunerna indelades i 8 grupper efter kommunstorlek, expansionstakt samt ´svaga´ respektive ´starka´ socialdemokratiska kommuner. I den mån det var möjligt togs också hänsyn till kommunens geografiska läge i förhållande till Stockholms stad. Härvid definierades varje kommun såsom belägen i en inre, en yttre eller en mellancirkel i förhållande till Stockholms stad. Vid den slutliga urvalsdragningen kom på så sätt en del kommuner att vara ´givna´ medan man lottade mellan de övriga. Likaså har givetvis båda kommunerna varit givna i de fall då endast två kommuner ingår i gruppen. Endast i ett fall har ett helt obundet urval skett.
Individurvalet utfördes lik
