What Worries Denmark | August 2021 | Ipsos


Worries related to COVID-19 continue to decrease, which means that for the first time since June 2020, COVID-19 is no longer the #1 biggest worry in Denmark. Instead, worries related to climate change and the environment are increasing, making it the new #1 biggest worry. Hence, climate change and the environment are now on the top of both the biggest worry and total worry.

As the nurse strike continued and was extended throughout the month, worries related to health care kept increasing, putting health care into the top 3 total worries among Danes.


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.
