This data report presents the key points and quantitative data relating to a survey exploring experiences of external interference among Finnish journalists, which was conducted in March 2017. This exploratory survey represents the first attempt at capturing a comprehensive empirical overview of the external interference experienced by Finnish journalists in the contemporary journalistic environment. To achieve this, the survey explored the prevalence, methods, and implications of external interference by measuring self-reported incidents of interference and journalists’ views of the effects of interference on their work and journalistic profession in general. The last three years (2014–2017) served as the reference period for the survey.
