The Swedish Institute of Public Opinion Research (SIFO) carried out this survey at the request of the daily paper Göteborgs-Posten. The respondents were asked if they would have voted for or against a Swedish membership of the EC at a hypothetical referendum the same day, and about their opinion of the development of the social security, environmental policy, private economy, and number of jobs if Sweden becomes an EC-member. Background variables include information on gender, place of living, age, Swedish citizenship, occupation, private or public sector, trade union, income and party voted for in the general election 1991.
