Nearly 1/5 of Sweden’s Population is Now Foreign-Born

Nearly one in five people living in Sweden was born in a foreign country, newly released statistics have revealed.

According to Statistics Sweden, a government agency responsible for producing official statistics, around 19.1 percent of Sweden’s population, nearly 2,000,000 people, were born outside of the country.

In just twenty years, between 2000 to 2019, the number of first-generation immigrants living in Sweden has increased nearly two-fold, from close to 1 million at the turn of the century. 2018 saw the number of first-generation immigrants grow by 80,000 people, SVT reports.

Today, around 190,000 Iraqi-born immigrants live in Sweden while close to 145,000 Syrian-born migrants call the Scandinavian country their home. Iranians and Poles are also high up on the list of foreign-born immigrants.

In a recent survey conducted by Pew Research, more than half of Swedes wanted to reduce immigration or totally stop immigration.
