Key findings

This survey was specially focused on examining discrimination in the work place. The numbers showed an increase in the numbers of citizens with non-western background who experienced discrimination by either their colleagues or costumers.

Methodology (Qualitative/Quantitative and exact type used, questionnaires etc)

Questionnaire-based quantitative survey by phone interview where the respondent is asked questions on discrimination within primary the work place and secondary other sectors of society. The exact same survey was made in 2000 and 2006 and it is therefore possible to see whether there has been an increase or decrease.
