Abstract [en]

Background. Satisfaction with democracy and generalized trust has shown to be able to link to the cultural marginalization within a society. Research concerning the correlation satisfaction with democracy and generalized trust shows that there is a significant positive correlation between the variables.

Material and method. The national representative SOM-enquiry from 2020 was used to study the relationship between satisfaction with democracy and generalized trust. In total, 22 500 individuals between the ages of 16 and 85 was selected (simple random sampling). A total of 11 127 respondents reported on every question in the total enquiry (including the control variables). The part that this study is based on included a probability sample of 3 750 people. The number of respondents in which this study is based on, was 1 863 respondents, which adds up to a response rate of 51 percent of the population surveyed. Multiple regression analysis with 5000 bootstrap iterations was used to study the correlation and control for the background variables.

Results. A medium strong positive correlation was detected between satisfaction with democracy and generalized trust even after the result was controlled for gender, education and income. However, the association did not persist when controlling for the variables age and ethnicity. Level of education is a significant player for the level of satisfaction with the way democracy works in Sweden and the degree of generalized trust, the higher the level of education, the higher the satisfaction with democracy in Sweden and the degree of generalized trust.

Conclusion. By investing in education, the interplay between satisfaction with democracy and generalized trust should influence cultural/social marginalization.
