Supplementary notes

The original question was phrased by the source as follows: "Hur stort förtroende har du för det sätt på vilket följande institutioner och grupper sköter sitt arbete?"

The different educational levels refer to the following:
Low education: no completion of compulsory school; primary school or equivalent;
Average education: gymnasium/high school completed but no university studies or graduation from university;
High education: university studies or graduation from university.

The percentage refers to the combined share of respondents stating to be "very large trust (1)" and "rather large trust (2)". The share answering to be "not very large trust (3)" and "not large trust at all (4)" is not included in this statistic.
