A survey commissioned by the Advisory Board for Defence Information (ABDI) explored the opinions of Finnish people on Finnish foreign and security policy and on defence policy. The survey also included questions on factors relating to safety and citizens’ sense of security pertaining to developments concerning the next five years, on factors giving rise to concern as well as on confidence over the future of the European Union and Finland. Altogether 20 questions were asked, two of which for the first time. Commissioned by the ABDI, the survey was carried out by market research Company Taloustutkimus Oy. The study was done as a part of omnibus research carried out in the form of personal interviews. A total of 1,001 individuals were interviewed. The target group of the study comprised the entire population between the ages of 15 and 79, with the exception of the Åland Islands. The sample was formed by quota sampling in which the target group’s quotas were the distribution of age, gender, province and municipality. The interviews were conducted at 87 localities, 52 of which were cities and the remaining 35 other municipality types. The sample was weighted to match the target group. The weighted N values correspond to the population aged 15 to 79 in thousands (SVT 31.12.2016)
