Four mines have been part of the studies in the MineHealth project. The perspectives of mine workers as well as administrative staff were examined. The mines in cooperation were from Finland, Sweden, Norway and Russia. At first, all the questionnaire forms used in these studies were alike, but due to different cultures and emphasis, the questionnaires were a little bit different in each country. Later, the questionnaires were equalized, i.g. pooled version. In Finland, the mine in cooperation was from Sodankylä, Kevitsa mine, which is a nichel and copper mine. Kevitsa mine is a relatively new mine and its operations are still developing.

The socioeconomic study was done in Sodankylä, where two researchers collected material two times, with the help of the questionnaire form below. Later, for the comparative study, the questions from the form were equalized to enable the comparison of the results with other partner countries.

Altogether 199 answers were collected, which is a statistically presentable sample of the amount of the workers. The final results from the questionnaires will be ready during December 2014. Similar studies have been done around the world, using the socioeconomic perspective in particular.
