VA Report 2012:5
Some ups, some downs
- Confidence in researchers at universities and in companies increases.
- People’s view on the degree to which scientific and technological advances affect their lives remains stable.
- Support for register-based research is widespread.
- A career in research is seen as less attractive.
These are some of the results in the 2012/13 VA barometer. It is based on 1,000 telephone interviews with a representative sample of the Swedish population aged 16–74. The interviews were carried out by market research company Exquiro between 29th September and 6th October 2012. It is the 11th survey to be conducted since VA was founded in 2002.
