The survey charted Finnish attitudes to energy production and energy strategy. The data are part of an extensive survey series launched in 1983. Respondents' conceptions, opinions, beliefs, assessments, attitudes and knowledge about various energy issues were studied by presenting several statements relating to energy production. Respondents were asked whether the privatisation of the energy company Imatran Voima would boost its operations and whether they were interested in investing in its shares. They were also asked to evaluate how the disposal of nuclear waste would affect employment, economic development, image, state of the environment and the attractiveness of the municipality. Respondents were asked in what direction electric power production should be developed in Finland.

Background variables included respondents' sex, age, region of residence, occupational group, basic and vocational education, political party preference and number of inhabitants in respondents' municipality of residence.
