Share of people interested in politics in Sweden 2008-2018, by origin

According to a survey on people's interest in politics in Sweden from 2007 to 2017, people who were raised in Sweden showed greater interest in Swedish politics than people who were raised outside Sweden. During this period, the amount of interest fluctuated for both groups of respondents. For people who grew up outside of Sweden, the lowest interest occurred in 2011, with a share of 49 percent of respondents being interested in politics. In comparison, the lowest interest for native Swedes was in 2008 and 2009 at 53 percent both years. As of 2018, 60 percent of the non-native Swedes were very or rather interested in Swedish politics, while 65 percent of the respondents raised in Sweden could say the same.
