Abstract [en]

The objective of this paper is to examine the impacts of individual, social and organizational effects on the adoption of geological information in the public sector, and to test if this information is jointly adopted with related information. Variables covering the motivation to adopt, perceived skills, perceived usefulness, gender, working unit and collegial advice are included in the estimation. The related information considered in this paper includes map data, demographic information and building information. The empirical results build in data from Swedish municipalities, and suggest that the adoption of geological and related information is a joint and complementary decision. Officials tend to adopt both geological and related information, which supports the idea for combined geoinformation products. The results also indicate that collegial advice, perceived skills from education, motivation to adopt, perceived usefulness, gender and working unit affiliation affect the adoption of geological information. Perceived usefulness has the largest effect on the likelihood of adopting, followed by motivation to adopt and perceived skills from education. This confirms the importance of potential adopters’ perception of the characteristics of the information. Moreover, the results also suggest that interpersonal contacts act as an important source of information that can affect the level of individual involvement with the information.
