Since records began in Sweden, there are now more men than women, SVT reports.
Population increases in all provinces except in Norrbotten, shows the new data from Statistics Sweden.
In March, Sweden's population was 9,793,172, nearly 46,000 more than at the end of the year, mainly due to a relatively high immigration.
The largest increases in population is in the major cities of Stockholm, Gothenburg and Malmö.
Lund stands out in the statistics as the municipality that decreased the most in the country. Lund residents were 700 fewer in the first half. But one important explanation for this trend is that the Tax Agency has conducted a review of the civil registers.
- And then we have found a lot of people who have emigrated (fled) without reporting it to Tax, says Tomas Johansson at Statistics Sweden.
This, together with the seasonal exodus of students has affected the population statistically.
In the rest of the country there is an explosion of the population, and mainly by males. The reason for this is immigration from countries in Africa and the Middle East, to Sweden, where male migrants stands for almost the whole immigration.
Thus, there are now more men than women in Sweden.
