Fewer people report changed behaviour in new survey

The list of what people are most worried about is largely unchanged, and there is a tendency for people to worry less over time, but fewer people report that they have changed their behaviour. These are the results of the latest survey by Kantar Sifo.

Changed behaviours

  • 86 per cent wash their hands more often or more thoroughly
  • 66 per cent follow the news more than they usually do
  • ’Have participated less in social activities outside the home’ is now at 66 per cent 
  • 65 per cent replied that they avoid public places where there are many people 
  • 60 per cent follow the news

Slight reduction in levels of worry

How much people are worried has remained at a fairly constant level throughout the period surveyed, although we now see the curve declining slightly. 

The principal causes of worry cited in the survey are the same as before:

  • that unemployment will increase: 86 per cent
  • that many businesses will be in serious financial trouble: 85 per cent 

Facts about the survey

A total of just over 5,000 individuals replied to questions in the survey. The majority of them had and upper secondary school (39 per cent) or higher education (56 per cent). 95 per cent of respondents were born in Sweden. 11 per cent of respondents had a mother and/or a father born outside Sweden.
