In this study carried out by the Swedish Institute of Public Opinion Research (SIFO) at the request of the business magazine Veckans Affärer, the respondent was asked questions about which political party had the best ideas for solving the environmental problems, and the importance of environmental issues when deciding which political party to vote for in the general election. The respondent also had to give an opinion on how much of their party program the Green Party would be able to accomplish if they entered the parliament, and if she/he ever considered voting on the Green Party in the 1988 election. Background variables include information on gender, place of living, age, Swedish citizenship, occupation, private or public sector, trade union, right to vote in general elections, voting habit, political party preference and party voted for in 1985.
