The SOM Institute is an independent survey research organisation at the University of Gothenburg. The Institute collaborates with researchers from a range of disciplines, aiming to explore Swedes' attitudes and habits in a range of areas and to understand the evolution of the Swedish society.
The SOM Institute has always focused on Swedes' habits, behaviour, opinions and values with respect to society, politics and media.
The large number of surveys and vast amount of collected data provide exceptional opportunities to carry out cross-disciplinary longitudinal analyses at the national, regional and local levels. The unique amount of data has made the SOM Institute a national research centre for researchers interested in empirical studies of society, opinions and media. The institute has also developed international collaborations with researchers in other parts of the world.
