Some overall conclusions

The results show that the respondents have relatively little contact with people born in Sweden, that two out of three believe that it will be difficult to get a job in Sweden, and that their knowledge of Swedish politics is low. Despite this, only one in five respondents reported that they always or often feel isolated from Swedish society. The absolute majority would like to continue to live in Sweden and most of the respondents rate their knowledge of the Swedish language as quite good.
