FOLKNET 1810-1990

Through FOLKNET you can get easy access to Swedish population statistics on a local and regional level during the period 1810-1990.

The database FOLKNET contains information about the entire population in Swedish parishes, towns, and existing municipalities, which was obtained every ten years during the period 1810-1990. This data was originally collected from Statistics Sweden by an enthusiast called Christian Swärd, and some additional information was also taken in from Tabellverket. He then left all of it to us at the Demographic Data Base to digitize.

With the search tool FOLKNET 1810-1990 you can select any geographical area – a single parish or town, or all parishes and towns in the country – for a chosen time. However, this public access database is unfortunately only available in Swedish.
