Continued support for Sweden’s strategy

This week’s survey by Kantar Sifo shows very small changes. An new question concerns changes over the last 1–2 weeks. The result indicates that about one in ten respondents follows the recommendations to a lesser degree today than they did 1–2 weeks ago. Eight in ten respondents state that they are following recommendations to same extent today as they did 1–2 weeks ago. But 6 per cent say that they are better at following the recommendations today than they were 2 weeks ago.

It is worth noting that Stockholmers are over-represented in 18 of the behaviour changes/measures.

The support for the balance struck between public health and the country’s economy is still considerable; just over six in ten respondents find that the balance is right, and seven in ten have a positive view of the future.

The survey also measures trust in public agencies and institutions, and here the Public Health Agency of Sweden together with medical care services have had very high trust figures throughout the period of measurement, while trust in elder care is around 20 per cent.


Kantar Sifo carries out the survey with the aim of continuously monitoring public opinion regarding such concerns as the various possible consequences of covid-19, trust in various stakeholders’ management of its spread, and what measures individuals themselves are taking to reduce the risk of being exposed.
