The view on climate change : A statistical survey of the difference in opinion between different European countries about climate change (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie har varit att analysera opinionsskillnaderna mellan arton olika europeiska länder med fokus på klimatförändringar. Med avsikt att studera hur postmaterialismen har påverkat människors åsikt och se om det finns en koppling mellan denna förändring och deras inställning till klimatförändringarna. För att kunna svara på denna fråga har undersökningen använt statistikdata från European Social Survey. Resultatet visar att det finns en skillnad i ländernas åsikter om klimatförändringar och där det finns en likhet mellan postmaterialism och deras åsikt om klimatet. Studien hittade dock en starkare koppling mellan människors utbildningsnivå och deras inställning till klimatförändringar. Denna korrelation blev uppenbar i Östeuropa eftersom de inte hade samma ekonomiska tillväxt som norra och centrala Europa, men detta hade liknande åsikter som sina andra länder.

Abstract [en]

The aim of this study has been to analyse the opinion differences of eighteen different European countries, with the focus on climate change. With the intentions to study how the postmaterialism has affected people’s opinion and see if there is a link between this change and their attitude about climate change. In order to answer this question, the study has used statistic data from European Social Survey. The result finds that there is a difference in countries opinion about climate change and where there is a like between postmaterialism and their opinion about the climate. However, the study did find a stronger connection between people’s level of education and their attitude towards climate change. This correlation became palpable in Eastern Europe since they have not had the same economic growth as the northern and central Europe, but this hade similar opinions as their other countries.
