National SOM 2000 is the fifteenth survey in this series. One of the questionnaires mainly deals with questions on politics, economy and working life, while the other mainly deals with media, culture and health. One third of the questions asked in the two questionnaires are common for both samples, for example questions about media habits, political attitudes, leisure activities, and social background.


The main purpose is to establish time series that enable researchers to analyse how various changes in society affect people's attitudes and behaviour.
