Sisällön kuvaus

This dataset consists of the combined responses from all respondent groups to the baseline and follow-up surveys collected in Finland as part of the Inclusive Promotion of Health and Wellbeing (PROMEQ 2016-2019) research project, which studied population groups that need special support. Themes of the surveys included social participation, mental and physical well-being, use of social and health services, and satisfaction with life. The respondent groups included young people not in employment or education, the long-term unemployed, immigrants, and people aged over 65. The study was conducted using a quasi-experimental design, meaning that some respondents participated in various interventions while others did not. The combined data include those questions that were consistently repeated for all respondent groups. More extensive data collected from each respondent group are also available at FSD (datasets FSD3432-FSD3435). The aim of the PROMEQ project was to develop and demonstrate novel models of promotion of health and wellbeing.

The surveys included many scales and questions used in other studies. Questions were selected, for instance, from the Finnish Youth Surveys, as well as the Regional Health and Well-being Study (ATH) and Welfare and Services in Finland (HYPA) surveys conducted by the Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare (THL). Most questions included in the baseline surveys were repeated in the follow-up surveys.

First, the surveys charted the respondents' living conditions, income, loans and need for financial aid or food assistance. The respondents' health, well-being and quality of life were examined, and satisfaction with different spheres of life was also surveyed. Social relationships and trust were examined next. The respondents were asked about feelings of loneliness and belonging, their social life, social participation, and trust in other people and various institutions. Additionally, experiences of discrimination based on several factors were charted, and the respondents' opinions on their own opportunities in life were surveyed.

Finally, the respondents' use of social and health services in the past 12 months (3 or 6 months in the follow-up surveys) was examined. Questions also focused on the respondents' satisfaction with the availability of various social and public services and their participation in group activities promoting health and well-being (e.g. weight management groups, AA, NA). The respondents' lifestyle was examined with questions on their exercise, eating and drinking habits.

Background variables included, among others, the respondent's gender, year of birth, marital status, highest level of education, household composition, and economic activity and occupational status. Additionally, the background information included whether the respondent belonged to the test or control group.
