Comparable and anonymized research materials from the years 1991, 1999, 2001, 2005 and 2015 are permanently archived in the Finnish Social Science Data Archive (FSD) under the name 'Suomalaisten arvot ja arkielämä' (Finnish values and everyday life). The dataset is available for research, teaching and study. Access condition (B).

Now the first archived material, year 2015 is available for download. According to current information, the entire material has been archived and can be downloaded by early autumn 2023.

Funding of the study
The study has been funded by the Academy of Finland, the Kone Foundation, and my now discontinued company Limor Oy. In the years 1999-2005, the study was also financed by carrying out company-specific studies for seven companies interested in values. The materials collected for companies contain a wide selection of attitude and behavior data that examines different areas of life. All seven companies have given permission to archive the data collected for them in FSD, and under the same conditions as other research materials.
