The aim of the study is basically the same as in Socio-Political Attitudes 1975. In the first part of the study there are some new questions about politics in the family and in the media. Questions about cars, living conditions, siblings are also added. The estimations of religiosity and extremism have been removed. The second part deals with the same group. Estimations of the Swedish political parties and party-leaders are located in this part together with the party preferences.
