Public opinion survey on the relationship between society and nuclear energy

Shinoda, Yoshihiko; Yamano, Naoki*; Torii, Hiroyuki*

I conducted a questionnaire survey of 2500 adults (collect rate 22.0%, 551 replies) who live in Tokyo metropolitan area. The purpose of this survey asking opinion about a relation between attitude toward nuclear technology utilization and social awareness is to find out their request, exception and concern about nuclear technology utilization. The survey reveals that the differences of attitudes towards nuclear technology utilization can be explained in terms of differences of general views on society such as directionality of social progress. Then, it is necessary to argue with citizens about the strategy on nuclear technology utilization from the viewpoint of directionality of the future society. The social decision-making process on nuclear technology utilization has to be renovated through the dialogue among citizens as the partner taking on the achievement and contribution toward directionality of the future society.
