The annual survey studied employee opinion on the quality of working life in Finland.
First, the respondents were asked how many years/months they had worked for the employer they were working for at the time, number of persons at the workplace, and what kind of changes there had been in staff numbers, working hours and contracts during the past 12 months, and whether people had been transferred to other units. Further questions covered whether there had been conflicts at the workplace and between what groups.
Autonomy at work, influence of trade unions and professional associations at workplace, overtime and its compensation, working time, changes at workplace over the past year, and pay systems were investigated. The respondents were asked how likely it was that they would be dismissed or laid off, or their tasks would be changed over the next year. Other topics covered employment situation, possible future changes at the workplace, financial situation of the workplace in the future and health risks of the job.
Background variables included the respondent's year of birth, mother tongue, gender, age group, industry of employment, employer type, status in employment, occupational group, working hours, province and vocational education. Most background variables were obtained from the Labour Force Survey 1993 telephone interviews.
