Description

The Regional Western Sweden SOM Survey 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.

Subject area

POLITICS, SOCIETY AND CULTURE, Elections, Political behaviour and attitudes, Political ideology, Cultural activities and participation, MEDIA, COMMUNICATION AND LANGUAGE, LABOUR AND EMPLOYMENT, Leisure, tourism and sport, Social behaviour and attitudes (CESSDA Topic Classification)
Social Sciences, Political Science, Political Science (excluding Public Administration Studies and Globalisation Studies), Media and Communications, Media Studies, Other Social Sciences, Other Social Sciences not elsewhere specified (The Swedish standard of fields of research 2011)
