Eight out of ten Norwegians believe that the government should do more to combat poverty in Norway.

The survey Norstat has conducted for ABC News shows that people between the ages of 18 and 29 are the age group where most people think the government should do more.

In addition, there is a distinction between urban and rural, where 75 and 82 per cent respectively say that the government should make better efforts.

However, the level of education makes the biggest difference in the answer. Where 72 per cent of people with a master’s degree or similar want more efforts to combat poverty, 88 per cent of people with only primary education answer the same.

According to Statistics Norway, about 320,000 Norwegians live in households where it is difficult to survive. At the same time, relative poverty in Norway is increasing. In 2017, a total of 30,000 more children grew up in low-income families than six years earlier.
