Immigration to Pass Births by 2030
A new report by the Institute of Future Studies claims that the number of immigrants in Sweden will soon be double that of new births each year.
Sweden’s number of immigrants has risen annually by 3 percent since 1980 and if it continues at this rate as many as 200 000 people will immigrate annually to Sweden in 2030, twice the number of births estimated per year.
According to the report’s authors Professor Bo Malmberg and Charlotta Hedberg at Stockholm University, Sweden needs to rethink the way they view increasing numbers of immigrants. The authors believe that migration contributes to a better economy and better relations between countries in the long run.
