This survey is the Swedish part of the 2015 'International Social Survey Program' (ISSP), and it is the fourth time an ISSP-survey is focusing on Work Orientations.

The International Social Survey Program, ISSP is a continuing annual programme of cross-national collaboration on surveys covering topics important for social science research. It brings together pre-existing social science projects and coordinates research goals, thereby adding a cross-national, cross-cultural perspective to the individual national studies.

Since its start in 1985, the attitudes toward a wide range of different subjects have been studied. Some themes have returned through the years, making it possible to compare them over time. The following topics have been discussed:

1985 The Role of Government I
1986 Social Networks I
1987 Social Inequality I
1988 Family and Changing Gender Roles I
1989 Work Orientations I
1990 The Role of Government II
1991 Religion I
1992 Social Inequality II
1993 Environment I
1994 Family and Changing Gender Roles II
1995 National Identity I
1996 The Role of Government III
1997 Work Orie
