The survey studied the attitudes of the Finns towards different political parties. The respondents were asked how favourably or negatively they view the Centre Party of Finland, the Finnish Social Democratic Party, the National Coalition Party, the Left Alliance, and the Green League. A number of attributes and characteristics were listed, and the respondents were asked to which party they could be applied. The respondents assessed government performance and were asked to name the party they would like to win the parliamentary elections. Voting behaviour was studied by asking the respondents for what party or group they would vote if the elections were held now, and how did they vote in the 1995 parliamentary elections and in the 1996 municipal elections, and which factors had affected their party selection. In addition, the respondents were asked whether they took care of everyday shopping or cooking in the household.

Background variables included the respondent's year of birth, marital status, annual gross income, place of residence, occupational group, line of work, trade union membership, and mother tongue.
