Danger in Sweden as movement towards gender imbalance will be here in 4 years

Sunday, 25 September 2011
There is a gender imbalance brewing Sweden and by 2015, there will be more men than women in Sweden - for the first time in centuries.

The Swedish news paper, Sydsvenskan looked into a report from Swedish statistic office, statistic Sweden which shows a historical trend break and for the future gender supply in the Swedish population, the study show that there will be more men than women.

According to the study, for centuries, Sweden has had a massively excessive number of women, a relationship which is now about to be broken. When the official census began in 1749, Sweden's population then was 53 percent of women.


Many men had been killed in war, but two other factors have affected their shorter life: hard work and hard life.

Live today, however, has given the men a better life and has enabled them to live healthier and longer.  Also a natural factor is that more men than women are born, this has pushed the gender balance to the side of the men.

According to Sydsvenskan, the shift in the statistics will come in four years. Then there will be a surplus of men to increase year after year - for decades.

This clarified in that the number of men who will be residents of Sweden by the spring of 2015 will be more than the number of women. Then surplus men are expected to increase year by year, decade to decade.   

In 2020, the number of registered men in Sweden will be 38,200 more than the number of women.
