Attitudes Towards Immigrants (The Research Council of Norway's coordination survey of 1988). The purpose of these surveys was to observe Norwegians' perceptions and knowledge about immigrants in Norway (except for immigrants from Northern Europe and North America), especially in light of people's social situation and attitudes on other areas. The survey contains information about the work and life situation, contact with immigrants, attitudes towards immigrants and immigration policy, values, political efficacy and economic deprivation. The survey was followed up with a new data collection in 1993. Many social science research projects that are financed by the Research Council gather data from sample surveys. To better coordinate and take advantage of scientific and economic resources, the Research Council of Norway's coordination committee for survey research was established in January 1983. The committee was to have responsibility for the conduction of surveys, giving researchers the possibility of parta king in joint projects. The survey in 1998 was conducted by Statistics Norway as a supplementary survey to the Labour Force Survey of the 1st quarter of 1988. The coordination committee aimed to carry on the tentative work of the surveys in 1984 and 1986. To avoid great thematical varieties, a frame for possible research questions was established. The join theme of the survey in 1988 was Attitudes towards immigrants. In addition to data from the survey, it was perceived as important to exploit the data that was collected through the Labour Force Survey in 1987, as the sample was drawn amongst persons participating in the Labour Force Survey for the third or the fourth time in the 1st quarter of 1988.
