Immigrants Core Values Differ a lot from Swedes

SWEDEN. World Values Survey have published a preliminary edition of a report about the opinions of the immigrants that have come to Sweden.

6 516 non-European immigrants answered the questions and there were both those who were newly arrived and those who have lived here for a longer time. 57% feel at home in Sweden (men more than women, those with low level of education more than those with high education) and 55% like where they live. The researchers think that men might like it better here as the responsibility to provide for their family have moved from them to the welfare state.

When it comes to tolerating homosexuality, sex before marriage, divorce, abortion and prostitution their opinions deviate a lot compared to Swedes. There were also “many” (no numbers mentioned) of the immigrants that thought that womens equality have gone too far.
