Fifty-five percent of Stockholmers want to ban begging, according to the survey by Ipsos on behalf of the Dagens Nyheter (DN) newspaper, released on Monday. A total of 33 percent of respondents said they thought begging should be allowed and 13 percent said they did not know.

It is a marked change since last year’s Stockholm survey asking the same questions, when 32 percent said they supported a begging ban and 58 percent said they did not.

When asked whether or not they give money to beggars, 66 percent of respondents told Monday’s survey they did not, compared to 54 percent a year ago.
