See abstract


In 1984 a large questionnaire survey was carried out at the Ilisimatusarfik/Greenland University of the attitudes of the Greenland population to a number of social questions. Due to lack of resources at the University this data material has never been systematically analysed in full. Thus, there is still a large, not examined material on the electorate in Greenland - an electorate which has not so far been subject to any systematic attitudinal analyses. # The purpose of the first part of the project is to carry out a systematic analysis of the survey material from 1984 (this material). # The purpose of the second part of the project (DDA-1518) is to carry out a new questionnaire survey in 1989. The questionnaire is based on the questionnaire from 1984, which has been adjusted to include current political issues. # The third part of the project consists of a systematic analysis of the answers from the 1989-survey and of a political scientific analysis of attitudinal changes of the electorate during the period based on an analysis of changes in the Greenland society
