In connection with the 2009 Finnish Youth Survey, a comparative sample was also collected from people aged between 50 and 55. The respondents estimated how similar values their generation and their children's or young people's generation had on issues such as art, religion, education, and work. They also expressed their opinions on which factors (e.g. the age of majority, moving away from one's parents, cohabitation or marriage) make a person an adult. In addition, the respondents were presented with a set of attitudinal statements on globalisation, cultural services and art. Finally, their views were charted with the help of various statements describing the significance of art.

Background variables included, among others, the respondent's age, gender, occupational status, level of education, and type of municipality.
