Swedens population 2020 – population changes


Sweden’s population was 10 379 295 people at the end of 2020. Women accounted for 49.7 percent and men accounted for 50.3 percent of the population. In 2020, the population increased by 51 706 people, which was the smallest population growth since 2005 and nearly half as large as last year. This smaller population increase was due to lower natural decrease as well as lower net migration. The number of immigrants in 2020 was at the lowest level since 2005. At the same time, slightly more people emigrated in 2020 than a year earlier.
