Is There a Hidden Potential for Rural Population Growth in Sweden?

Publication year: 2010

Thomas Niedomysl and Jan Amcoff

This paper examines whether a hidden potential for rural population growth can be found in Sweden through investigating survey data of people expressing their desire to move to rural areas, and register data of those who actually do so. Amongst the findings, more people have rural residential preferences than the actual number of migrants to rural areas suggest, thus there is a general potential for rural population growth.
