Swedes “most positive” about immigration

Published lördag 17 januari 2015 kl 16.03

Within the European Union, Swedes have the most positive attitude towards immigrants, according to online news site Europaportalen.

Compared to the populations of other EU member states, Swedes are much more positive about accepting immigrants from within the EU as well as from non-EU countries, according to the Eurobarometern opinion poll as cited by news agency TT.

A total 72 percent of Swedish respondents said they are quite positive or very positive to non-EU immigration. Sweden’s result is significantly higher than the second most positive countries, Croatia and Spain, where the corresponding figure is 48 percent.

A majority (57 percent) of the nearly 28,000 EU citizens interviewed for the survey have a quite negative or very negative view of non-EU migration. When it comes to immigration from within the EU, the figure is 41 percent.

Latvians, the Czech and Italians are the most critical of immigration, the survey shows.
