Description:

The Swedish journalist survey is conducted at the Dept of Journalism, Media and Communication (JMG) at the University of Gothenburg. The questionnaire is submitted to 2,000 randomly selected journalists from all over Sweden.

The purpose of the study is to investigate how Swedish journalists perceive themselves and society, their professional role and work situation, the problems related to their code of professional ethics and the developments in the media sector.

The main purpose of the journalist surveys is to investigate in a broad pers
