Description:

This survey is the Swedish part of the 1997 'International Social Survey Program'. ISSP is an ongoing program of cross-national collaboration. Formed in 1984, the group develops topical modules dealing with important areas of social science as supplements to regular national surveys. The topic of 1997 was 'Work orientations'.

The respondents were asked if they wanted to spend more or less time on gainful employment, housework, family, friends, and leisure activities. They could also state if they agreed or not with a number of statements concerning work in general. A number of questions concerned how important different factors are for work, and the situation at the respondent's workplace. Respondents also had to give their opinion on the sabbatical year. Socio-economic background information includes occupation, trade union affiliation, education, housing, income, marital status, spouse's occupation and income, number of children, citizenship of parents, and political preferences.
