The survey focused on the health promotion strategies, methods and activities of Finnish municipalities (local government) at the time of the survey and in the future. The respondents were municipal managers or directors of health services. The same set of questions was also presented to member organisations (FSD2439).

Opinions on the general situation of health promotion in the municipality and in Finland were charted. The respondents were also asked about the state of various health promotion issues in their municipality, for instance, care available for alcohol and drugs misusers, support for families with children, the aged and the disadvantaged, access to municipal services, and leisure opportunities. View were also probed on the visibility and social significance of health promotion, resource allocation in health services, and how well the objectives of the Health Promotion Policy Programme and the Policy programme for the well-being of children, youth and families had been reached.

Background variables included the respondent's role (municipal manager, director of health services), province of residence, and the number of inhabitants in the municipality.
