In the last decade, the number of people who think that Norway’s wage differences are too great has increased. Even the richest in Norway have become more skeptical of inequality.
58% of the respondents believe that the wage differences in Norwegian society are too large, the survey Norsk Monitor from Ipsos for 2021 and 2022 shows. This is the highest level Ipsos has measured since they started the survey in 1985.
In 1999, the proportion was as high as now, but the trend was largely declining until and including 2013, when 44% thought that the differences were too great. Since then, the share has gradually increased by 14%.
“There has been a fairly steep increase in the last ten years,” senior consultant John Spilling in Ipsos stated.
About 3,500 people participate in the survey, which is conducted every other year.
