Description

Since 1956 an election study has been carried out in connection with a Swedish general election. This study is accordingly number twelve of the collection. Many of the questions are replications of questions asked in one or several of the previous surveys, but there are also a number of questions not asked before. In this survey the respondents had to give their opinion on the major tax reform completed in this year. They also had to indicate what they considered most important to fight against, unemployment or inflation, and their opinion on the preferences of the political parties. In view of the deteriorating economy the respondents had to give their opinion on the cause of the economic problems in Sweden, and how the situation would have been if there had been a bourgeois government. The respondents also had to indicate if they had been affected by the tightening labour market. A number of questions dealt with the European Community and a possible Swedish membership.

Purpose:

Explain why people vote as they do and why an election ends in a particular way. Track and follow trends in the S
