Six out of ten municipalities have no up-to-date, written routines to prevent the eviction of families with children.

The National Board of Health and Welfare has compared how municipalities around the country deal with evictions of families. The study reveal that in Blekinge in southern Sweden eight out of ten of the municipalities have routines to deal with the problem, while in Jämtland in the north, none of them have.

According to the news agency TT, many small municipalities, with fewer than 10,000 inhabitants, find the problem so small that no special routines are necessary.

Families with children who are evicted seldom end up on the street, but in some form of temporary housing. Of the 34,000 people who were without a home in May last year, 11300 had underage children, according to the study.
