National Public Health Survey – Health on equal terms (Sweden)

Sweden’s 2020 public health survey, sent out every two years, found that 70% of respondents feel that they live in good health. This percentage has been increasing since 2004, but seems to have stalled now. Consistent with findings from previous studies, people with lower education levels more often reported ill health than people with higher education levels. Although the survey was carried out during the pandemic, there did not appear to be any major changes in the results. Future surveys will follow up on the pandemic’s impact on the determinants of health.
