The future population of Sweden 2019–2070


A growing number of people reach higher ages. According to Statistics Sweden’s population projection, women who turn 65 this year, have, on average, 23 years left to live, while men have slightly fewer years left to live, 21 years. By 2029, Sweden’s population is estimated to reach 11 million. This is a somewhat slower growth rate than in recent years, which is mainly due to the fact that the number of persons immigrating to Sweden has declined.
