Statistics Sweden has released its report on the 2006 elections highlighting that roughly 5 percent of the members of the Swedish Parliament are less than 30 years of age. When it comes to gender, SCB reports that there is an uneven distribution of men and women in every third municipal council since the municipal elections in 2006. There are less than 40 percent of women in 96 municipal councils.
On a parliamentary level, the 2006 elections saw a slight drop in the number of foreign-born people among those elected. 17 of the 349 members of parliament have a country other than Sweden as their country of birth.
