Fennovoima has commissioned a resident survey of the surrounding areas of the nuclear power plant from Norstat Finland eight times since 2008. Norstat Finland conducted a phone survey of a total of 800 randomly selected people, 400 in Pyhäjoki and 400 in the nearby areas. The margin of error is ± 3.5 percent at most. In addition, the residents had the opportunity to share of what topics they want more information about.
