Description:

The SOM survey in West Sweden has been conducted yearly since 1992. The survey 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 behavior 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.
The Super-West SOM contains data from the SOM survey in West Sweden surveys from 1992. The data contains a selection of questions frequently asked over the years, focusing on time series.

Purpose:

The purpose of the regional surveys is to enable SOM researchers to study attitudes and behaviour linked to local and regional issues.

Subject area:

media, political behaviour and attitudes (CESSDA Topic Classification)
