A recent survey conducted by Reagera Marknadsanalys on behalf of real estate firm Fastighetsbyrån found that Swedes have extremely low confidence in certain professions. Among the lowest were 6% for politicians and 4% for journalists.

The survey took place between 6 and 14 October 2010, and interviewees were 1001 men and women between ages 20 and 74. The object of the survey was to study how comparatively well real estate brokers fared, a profession many people regard with disdain. Listed figures are for the ones people have great confidence for. Car salesmen received the least trust, at 1%. These are the complete figures:

  • Physicians – 55%
  • Police officers – 50%
  • Bank clerks – 21%
  • Lawyers – 21%
  • Craftsmen – 13%
  • Politicians – 6%
  • Real estate brokers – 5%
  • Journalists – 4%
  • Fund managers – 4%
  • Car salesmen – 1%

It’s interesting to note that when politicians don’t have confidence in people managing their own affairs, or journalists in people being able to handle the truth, they don’t get much confidence in return either.
