A total of 20% of Norwegians now state that they are worried about their personal finances due to the pandemic – the lowest level since the corona pandemic hit Norway.
The information was announced in the Norwegian Corona Monitor poll, carried out by Opinion.
The figure for May this year is 6% lower than in May last year and 14% lower than when Norway closed down in March last year.
At the same time, 40% of those surveyed are worried about the Norwegian economy as a result of the pandemic.
“Twice as many people worry about the Norwegian economy as they do about their personal finances,” senior adviser Nora Clausen in Opinion noted.
However, this is also the lowest level of concern so far during the pandemic – as much as 26% lower than in March last year.
In the survey for May, 44% say that they have confidence that the government has implemented the necessary economic measures to limit the damaging effects on the Norwegian economy – an increase of 5% from April.
For the first time in a year, public confidence in the government’s efforts is increasing.
