October Update: What Worries Denmark

The What Worries Denmark study gives you monthly insight into the most pressing reported concerns of Danish citizens. Discover the October update below.

By initiating a Danish tracking study from January 2020, we can now see what keeps Danes up at night and how this change over the months and years. 

What has been worrying Danes in October has remained largely the same as the previous month. Coming to terms with realization that Denmark and the rest of Europe are facing a second wave of COVID-19 has kept the Coronavirus as the biggest concern in October, both top-of-mind and overall. Climate Change has maintained its spot as the second biggest worry, with an upward trend in recent months. Furthermore, the State of the Economy also remains a sizeable concern for Danes in recent months, and will likely continue to do so as the volatility surrounding the pandemic continues. 


The Biggest Worries chart refers to an individual’s perception on the largest/most top-of-mind challenge Denmark is dealing with today.


The Total Worries chart encompasses the biggest worries and the respondents’ other worries combined.
