This is the fifth study in the collection of Student-SOM surveys. The aim of these studies is to shed light on opinions and habits of the student generation of today. The questionnaire - mainly a replication of questionnaires used in earlier Student-SOM surveys - included questions about study programme, mass media, politics and society, energy, nuclear power and environment, leisure-time activities, and background.
