The Advisory Board for Defence Information (ABDI) commissioned this survey to ascertain the opinions of Finns on Finnish foreign, security, and defence policy. The survey also included questions regarding the Finland-NATO cooperation and the relationship between Finland and the NATO. In addition, the respondents were asked to provide their views on how they feel security will develop over the next five years and to assess the factors which affect their feeling of security.

The survey also polled the citizens' views on preparedness for various threats, Finland's participation in the EU's rapid response force and in the NATO Response Force, as well as in peace support and crisis management tasks in war zones.

Background variables included the respondent's gender, age, education, occupation, province of residence, and household income.
