Seven out of ten Swedes want to prohibit a rate of monetary return within health, education and care, according to a report from the Som-Institut. The criticism of the privatization within these sectors was strong in 2013.

"Seventy percent were in favor of the proposal to ban profits within tax-funded health care, education and social care,” says Lennart Nilsson at the Som-Institut. The Swedish people have the greatest confidence for how health care is being run, followed by how Swedish universities and colleges are run, according to the analysis from the Som-Institut. ”At the bottom, among the public institutions, we find the European Parliament and the EU Commission but also banks and the political parties,” explains Lennart Weibull, one of the initiators of the Som-Institut and professor of mass media research in the Department of Journalism, Media and Communications at Göteborg University.

Among the greatest losers on the list of confidence, seen over time, is the Swedish Royal House. In general, the numbers have dwindled since the 1990s. In the fall of 2013, 16 percent said they have very low confidence in the royal family. ”It is difficult to say why—there are several factors. But the Royal House is one of those institutions we measure where we see the biggest difference between people who vote politically left or right. Whichever way the wind blows, right or left, affects the confidence,” Weibull adds.
