Are the Danes too honest for their own good?

Another eurobarometer survey, this time on the informal economy in the EU.

And what is it with the Danes? When asked whether they had performed undeclared work, a rather impressive 18% were prepared to 'fess up. In contrast, 2% of my compatriots were prepared to make the same admission. Perhaps most telling is that 11% of the Irish took the Fifth, so to speak, and refused to answer.

Elsewhere, the Portuguese are the most in fear of being caught, with 50% reckoning the chance of being nabbed at 50%. Maybe they should make tracks to Stockholm, as only 14% of Swedes think the chances of being collared are high. Mind you, 18% of Swedes reckon that the Goteborg / Kiruna / Stockholm Big House would be their destination if caught Meanwhile, over a fifth of Irish, Romanian, Spanish and Bulgarian respondents just did not know.
