Statistical Yearbook of Sweden

1914 marked the beginning of the publishing of a book that has come to symbolise all of Sweden's statistical information, the Statistical Yearbook of Sweden. The book is bilingual in the text headings and table headings. The two languages were Swedish and French up until 1951, but in 1952 English replaced French as the foreign language.

In 1952 a sweeping change occurred for the Statistical Yearbook. The length of time series was limited to ten years, as a rule. A number of new areas arose such as social insurance, social care and correctional treatment. The tables were also simplified and became easier to access when extremely large tables were broken down into smaller ones, and landscape tables were avoided. The revisions were made gradually during the period 1952-1956.

After these significant changes the book continued to develop. Computers, large and small alike, have simplified production. The first graphs - a total of five graphs on two pages - came in 1984. In connection with the new millennium, an utter explosion of graphs occurred, and each section was illustrated with several time series of graphs. The development of the Statistical Yearbook accurately reflects the changing perspective of statistics from the end of the 19th century to the beginning of the 21st century.
