In the survey carried out by Sentio Research, it appears that pessimism is evenly distributed in the population. Regardless of age, place of residence or political preference, around seven out of ten believe that the young people will find it more difficult.

The only group that stands out are people who earn over NOK 1.5 million a year. Here, “only” 63 per cent believe that the young have it tougher.
