This is one of the figures revealed in a poll due to be released in June by the SOM Institute at Gothenburg University, Swedish Radio has reported.
Of the 3,000 people questioned in the survey, 39 percent were in favour of Sweden being in the EU. Almost as many, 37 percent, were against. These figures were largely unchanged from previous surveys.
The survey also showed that Swedes' expectations of the EU are lower than before. In 1994, 42 percent believed that membership would improve Sweden's employment rate. This figure has now fallen to 9 percent.
