The political efficacy : A statistical analysis of the political support of Sweden's politicians, police and legal system (English)
Abstract [en]

This essay studies what is affecting the Swedish people’s trust in the country’spoliticians, police and legal system. This was done by conducting multiple regressionanalyses in SPSS, using the Swedish survey data from the 2016 Europen Social Survey.To determine what is affecting this kind of trust, this study used Caroline McEyvoy’sdefinition of political efficacy from her studies of people’s view on the EuropeanUnion. The theories being used are Robert Putnam’s definition of the social capital,deriving from his studies in Italy and the United States, together with Ola Listhaug’sand Arthur Miller’s theory on how people’s evaluation of the government’sperformance affects their political support.The results show that people’s trust in Sweden’s politicians, police and legal system is,to a varying degree, significantly affected by their political efficacy, social trust andreligious attendance. Across all instances people’s evaluation of the government’sperformance were found to have the strongest effect.
