The future population of Sweden 2009–2060

Around the middle of the last century Sweden had a population of slightly more than 7 million people. Sweden's population exceeded 8 million at the end of the 1960s and 9 million in 2004. By 2024 the 10 million mark will be passed and at the end of the projection period Sweden is expected to have a population of 10.7 million.

Average life expectancy for women in the projection is predicted to rise from 83 years in 2008 to 87 years in 2060. For men, the corresponding expected increase in average life expectancy for the same period is from 79 to 85 years.

Fertility is expected to drop from today's 1.9 children per woman to 1.8 children per woman.

Net immigration in recent years has been record high, with more than 50 000 persons annually. In the long term we expect to have an immigration of 76 000 and an emigration of 57 000. This results in a net immigration of about 19 000 persons per year.
