Language Barometers


The Language Barometer has measured the quality of language services in bilingual Finnish municipalities since 2004. The aim of the barometer is to find out how satisfied minority language speakers are with the municipal and state services offered in their mother tongue. The surveys are conducted by a research unit of Åbo Akademi University in Vaasa in collaboration with the Ministry of Justice, Association of Finnish Local and Regional Authorities and Swedish Cultural Foundation in Finland.
