Novus surveys in socio-economically segregated areas (RegSo)
Novus conducts many surveys among residents in socio-economically segregated areas (RegSo).
RegSo is a nationwide division of areas with 3,363 areas from Statistics Sweden for statistical monitoring of socio-economic segregation. This area division is based on the percentage of the population in each area that has a foreign background.
In the Novus Sweden panel, we have information about which RegSo area the panel members live in.
This means that we have the opportunity to report results in areas with different socio-economic segregation.
With foreign background we refer to people who were born abroad, as well as people who were born in Sweden with two foreign-born parents. The persons must be registered in Sweden.
