Socio-economic background statistics, 2016
- The socio-economic preconditions in the population differ between various municipalities
- A higher proportion of the population (18-64 year-olds) have lower income in Malmö than in Stockholm, Gothenburg and the national average
- The number of unemployed and immigrants is higher in Malmö than other large cities and the national average
The background statistics illustrate the different socio-economic preconditions in the municipalities, such as inhabitant age groups, employment, income and education levels. They are important to the interpretation of the material, as they can partially (but not fully) explain the outcome.
It can be expected that the statistics vary to a certain extent. For example: an unemployed person can also have a low income and be an immigrant, a low-educated person can also be young, etc.
