Dataset: Environment, 2000, Norwegian part of ISSP

Abstract

This survey is carried out on the basis of the research collaboration in "The International Social Survey Programme" (ISSP). ISSP is an international organisation that prepares and coordinates annual surveys in its member countries, mainly within the fields of political science and sociology. The topic of the surveys varies, but are repeated at intervals of a few years. In this way, changes in behavioral patterns and attitudes over time as well as differences between countries and cultures,   
are possible to be detected and measured.

The Norwegian Social Science Data Services (NSD) became a member of ISSP in 1989 and have since been responsible for carrying out the surveys in Norway. In connection to the survey, Norwegian researchers are invited to add supplementary questions to the Norwegian respondents.

In 2000, the objective was to collect data on the perceptions of and attitudes towards values, nature and environment, environmental efficacy, knowledge of environment and science, risks of certain environmental problems, the environmental effort and involvement of individuals, business and state, trust in environmental information from different groups/sources and individual individual participation in environmental issues. NSD and ISSP conducted a similar survey in 1993.  

The Norwegian additional part was in 2000 developed in collaboration with Pål Kjetil Botvar, KIFO (Centre for Church Research) og Gunnar Grendstad, Department of Comparative Politics, UiB. The questions in the Norwegian part deals with (among other issues) popular religiousity and New Age-influenced religiousity.
