UPI News Service, 02/12/2013 

A Swedish insurance company said its survey indicates Swedes are more tolerant toward their neighbors than Britons.

Trygg-Hansa said its survey of 3,435 Swedes, carried out in September, and June's survey of 1,000 Britons indicated 70 percent of Swedish respondents don't mind if their neighbors play loud music late on Friday and Saturday nights while only 6 percent of Britons polled said the same, The Local.se reported Tuesday.

"We Swedes have a reputation of being cold and aloof, a myth that this survey contradicts," Trygg Hansa spokesman Johan Eriksson said. "These figures show we are considerate and open, and that we really enjoy talking to our neighbors."

The survey also found 91 percent of Swedish respondents would expect a call from a neighbor if alarms on their home or car went off while they weren't home, compared to only half of British respondents.

The company did not reveal the methodology or margin of error for the survey.
