Integration, healthcare, law and order and employment: these are the areas of Swedish society which are in the worst shape, according to voters' personal experience.

That's the result of a survey by Sifo, carried out on behalf of Göteborgs-Posten. The polling company asked 1,000 people in Västra Götaland 'which of the following are not working well for you and your family?'.

39% of respondents picked out integration as being the 'most failing' of the eleven alternatives. 37% pointed to healthcare, while law and order and employment were ticked by 35%.

Then came leisure opportunities for the young, and care for the elderly, with 27% and 26% respectively, reported GP.

At the other end of the list, indicating a degree of relative satisfaction, was housing and child care. Only 4% and 6% respectively said they had a problem with these areas.

Professor Masoud Kamali, who investigates discrimination and integration issues on behalf of the government, said he was rather surprised by the results.

In a commentary, he said to GP that the focus for integration matters is shifting from problems directly relating to immigrants to how society handles people with different backgrounds.
