Average taxable capacity in the big cities

Taxable capacity. Stockholm, Malmö and Gothenburg. Proportion of national average 1995-2018. Source: SCB

  • Malmö's average taxable capacity declined steadily until 2011. It then levelled out and remained stable for several years. It rose in 2016 by 1% (from 84% to 85%)
  • Important factors that explain the relatively low earnings in Malmö:
    14.9% unemployment (nat. ave. 7.6%)
    Unemployment level
    Bridge effect
    Malmö's housing and employment markets
  • Factors that play a lesser role compared to Gothenburg and Stockholm:
    Inbound commuting
    Housing stock
    Youth
  • Taxable capacity is an effect derived from how many are in work, what education and level of education they have, and their level of income.
  • Commuters from Malmö to Copenhagen are not included.
  • Two of our neighbouring municipalities, Vellinge and Lomma, are amongst the highest income levels in Sweden. Their inhabitants often work in Malmö or Lund.
  • To boost taxable capacity, unemployment needs to drop and full-time employment increase.
  • Those jobs actually created in Malmö do not always match the level of education and qualifications of the population.
