THE Monarchy is no longer a problem for Spaniards, according to statistics.
Six months after the crowning of the new King Felipe VI, a ‘zero per cent’ of Spaniards have included the Royal Household in the list of their main worries, according to the data provided by the Centre of Sociologic Investigations (CIS).
More than 2,500 interviews were carried out between December 1 and 11 to create the report.
The improvement in the population’s perception of the Monarchy can also be seen in the data from November, when only 0.3 per cent of the interviewees considered it a problem.
Unemployment continues to be the main worry for Spanish people, with 75.5 per cent of those interviewed placing it in the first place of the list, followed by corruption (60 per cent), the economical and financial crisis (24.9 per cent) and the political class (21 per cent).
The last month’s data is particularly interesting as it placed terrorism as a major threat for only 0.1 per cent of the participants.
The independence movement of Cataluña has also lost power in Spain, with only 8.9 per cent considering that it could become a reality, while in November the figure was 12.4 per cent. On the other hand, those who still wish to be part of Spain have increased from 29.9 per cent to 32.8 per cent.
Spaniards have also become more optimistic about the financial situation, with 22.5 per cent of them believing that the economy will be better in one year (19 per cent thought so in November).
However, only 15.6 per cent believe that the political situation will be more positive in 12 months.
