Creator/Principal investigator(s):

University of Gothenburg, SOM Institute

Description:

Western SOM has been conducted yearly since 1992, but was initially limited to residents of Gothenburg and its surrounding municipalities. In 1998, the survey was extended to include the entire Västra Götaland County plus the municipality of Kungsbacka.

The purpose of the regional surveys is to enable SOM researchers to study attitudes and behaviour linked to local and regional issues. They emphasise public services and media, although many of the questions are identical with those used in National SOM in order to make the answers comparable both between the regions and with Sweden at large.

Purpose:

Study attitudes and behaviors that are linked to local and regional issues and phenomena

Subject area:

media, political behaviour and attitudes (CESSDA Topic Classification)
Social Sciences, Political Science, Media Studies (The Swedish standard of fields of research 2011)
