In the middle of the sixties Testologen AB, in cooperation with a group of advertisers, introduced a new way of investigation where data about the target groups, i.e. interests, consumer habits, possessions, buying intentions, and data about reading habits were collected in the same survey. At SSD there are now surveys available from the Sweden Now series covering the period 1972-1991. In the 1977 survey the respondents had to indicate their reading habits concerning fifteen different daily papers, weekdays and weekends respectively. They also had to state their reading habits concerning nearly fifty papers from the weekly and monthly press. Other questions dealt with the household´s possession of a number of capital goods such as, car, camera, projector, washing machine, dishwasher, etc. and also if there were any dogs, cats, aquarium fishes or cagebirds in the household. A group of questions is dealing with buying habits and purchasing intentions for a number of products. A number of questions about personal interests are introduced by ´Human interests are different. How great is your interest for the following subjects and activities´. Subsequently the respondent is asked how interested he/she is in buying food, cooking, having guests, leisure time activities, etc. There is information about the respondent´s gender, marital status, age, income, occupation, education and housing, and also about the household´s size, age structure, and total income of household. Sweden Now 1978 is almost a total replication from the year before. A novelty for this survey is that the respondents had to indicate if they agreed or disagreed with a number of statements concerning life style. The number of questions concerning how frequently different shops are visited have been enlarged, while the questions about decisional power in the household have been removed. Purpose: Collect broad information about interests, purchasing habits and media choices Subset of Sweden Now 1978-II, covering the period 1978-01-09 to 1978-03-20.

I mitten av 1960-talet introducerade Testologen AB, i samverkan med en grupp annonsörer, en ny undersökningsform som innebar att målgruppsdata - socio-ekonomiska data, intressen, köpvanor, innehav, köpavsikter mm - och läsvanedata insamlades i en och samma undersökning. Undersökningarna går under benämningen 'Sverige Nu', men databanken marknadsförs under benämningen ORVESTO. Namnet ORVESTO markerar målsättningen att täcka många mediagrupper: OR som i organisationspress, VE som i veckopress och STO som i storstadspress. Vid SND finns ORVESTO-undersökningar som täcker en tjuguårsperiod, 1979-1991 tillgängliga. Syfte: Samla in en bred information om intressen, köpvanor och mediaval Delmängd av ORVESTO 1978-II omfattande perioden 1978-01-09 till 1978-03-20.
