ABSTRACT
A representative survey of about 2 000 citizens of the Federal Republic of Germany was conducted in November/December 1986, seven months after the Chernobyl accident, to analyze the impact of that event on the behavior, opinions and attitudes of the West German public. It was found that one major response to the event is uncertainty about the health consequences of the reactor accident. About 50% of the interviewed people report changes in nutritional habits of both themselves and their children. About 40% of the respondents voted in favour of an accelerated abandonment of nuclear energy by shutdown of existing nuclear power plants and not just by the prohibition of new ones. Trust in established institutions like Government, Nuclear Research Centres and Nuclear Industry was lower than that in institutions opposing the "establishment" like the Oko-Institute (an "alternative" research establishment), citizens' interest groups and journalists.
