Description:

Since 1997, MedieAkademin has carried out an annual survey titled The Institutional Trust. The survey has focused on major social institutions, such as the parliament, big business, the daily press, and TV/radio, as well as some specific companies such as Sveriges Television, TV4, IKEA, Skandia, and Volvo. The number of institutions included has varied somewhat over the years. Some of the institutions and companies have been measured every year while others have been investigated more irregularly.

The survey was carried out by NFO Infratest and involved 750 individuals who were interviewed by telephone between October 15 and November 5, 2002. The 2002 survey also included questions about how people perceive the morality of the actions of some social institutions, and how the institutions influence social development.
