The survey was conducted in order to evaluate "the Action plan for welfare services for the elderly 1998-2001". 1000 elderly people in Oslo, Kristiansand, Bergen, Trondheim and Tromsø were contacted and asked how they were doing. 570 persons gave consent to be interviewed. The aim was to study experiences care givers and care receivers have with regard to how nursing and care services functions. Please note that 3 different questionnaires were used, one for those living in nursing homes, one for those who lived in care homes and one for those elderly people living at home. The answers of all three groups are incorporated in this file. The aim was to study experiences the employed have with how nursing and care services in Oslo, Bergen, Trondheim, Kristiansand og Tromsø work. When the Action plan for welfare services for the elderly 1998-2001 was adopted (19th of June 1997) the National Assembly of Norway (Stortinget) demanded an evaluation. Several research projects evaluating different parts of the action plan were initiated. These projects are finances by the Research Council of Norway.
