- Confidence in research is high.
- Research is not a key issue for political parties in Sweden.

These are some of the results of the 2017/18 VA barometer. The VA Barometer is based on around 1,000 telephone interviews with a randomised sample representative of the Swedish population aged 16–74. The interviews were carried out by market research company Exquiro between 11 September and 1 October 2017. It is VA’s 16th Barometer survey since the organisation was founded in 2002.
