According to Wikipedia, Sweden is known for a variety of things. They have the third-lowest rate of infant mortality, they are ranked fourth in competitiveness, and is overall a generally happy place. Now, they’re known for another thing: lots of vegetarians.

New research finds that vegetarianism and veganism is on the rise in Sweden with 10% of the population choosing meatless meals. This is a 4% increase over the past 5 years.

The survey, conducted by research consulting agency, Demoskop, was commissioned by activist group, Animal Rights Sweden. The survey was conducted over February and March of this year and surveyed 1,000 people, aged 15 and up. Plant-based eating spiked in popularity among the 15-34 years age range, and was also more popular in the cities of Stockholm and Skane. The future looks even more vegan-friendly, with 37% of the surveyed meat-eaters expressing interest in trying more plant-based meals, that being an increase of 5% since the last survey of this kind, conducted in 2009.
