Description

Since 1986 the research project ´Samhälle Opinion Massmedia´ (SOM) has been carrying out an annual nation-wide survey of Swedish opinions. This is accordingly the eleventh survey in this series. The questionnaire was divided into six subject fields: mass media; politics and society; Sweden´s relations to the rest of the world; energy, nuclear power and environment; leisure; and background. Most of the questions are replications of questions asked in one or several previous SOM-surveys. New media questions dealt with how often the respondent read local advertisement papers as well as daily papers on the internet. The respondent also had to state if a number of statements corresponded with qualities held by the morning and evening papers the respondent used to read, and to indicate if criticism directed towards daily papers could be applied on papers read by the respondent. Respondents were also asked about their opinion on the function of democracy in Sweden, attitudes towards proposals how to reduce unemployment, and to give their opinion on the possibility to reduce unemployment by 50 percent
