Abstract [en]

In an investigation with linear typal analysis on a representative sample of the Swedish population (N = 229 participants) and a local sample with N=31 environmental activists two attitudinal types were found. 

Type I respondents seemed to be more concerned than type II respondents. Type I gave environmental problems a higher priority, was critical against authorities, industry, city growth, and motorism, more restrictive against economic growth, more worried about the future, and demanded more information and public influence than type II. By computing Euclidean distances to the mean 64-variable profile of the two types 28 of the activists were classified as type I. The typology was crosstabulated against 46 other variables. There were no correlations with conventional background variables.
