The survey studied Finnish values and attitudes. The respondents were asked to what extent they agreed with a number of statements relating to Finland's EU membership, replacement of the Finnish currency with the euro, EU enlargement, political parties, gender equality, enterprises, economic growth, environmental issues, Finland's potential NATO membership, globalisation, immigration, immigrants, immigration policy, political power, national identity, market economy, welfare state, etc. Opinions on how to develop education and how to allocate tax revenue were studied. Attitudes to different kinds of interest movements and voluntary organisations were surveyed, likewise the respondents' expectations of what Finland would be like in 2025. The respondents were also asked whether there were conflicts between certain groups (e.g. rich - poor, employers - employees, men - women, enterprises - environmental protection) in Finnish society.

Background variables included the respondent's sex, age group, size of the municipality of residence, type of the neighbourhood, province of residence, basic education, vocational education, economic activity, trade union membership, industry of employment, self-perceived social class, and which party R would vote for if the parliamentary elections were held at that time.
